The last 6 months or so, I have been having to fight with my old dial thermostat to get it to work properly. Yes, I know, I am so behind the times having a dial thermostat still. But, my dial thermostat had never done me wrong until now. I finally got fed up with all the hassle, and admitted to myself that it was finally time that I replace the dial thermostat. The only question was, what kind of thermostat was I going to go with? I looked at basic digital thermostats, and I thought that may be the answer. However, when I was reading about programmable thermostats, that was what I decided I wanted to go with! I was all into the idea of smart technology as it was, and this thermostat could be controlled from anywhere in the world, all through an app on your cell phone or computer. I made a few phone calls to the local heating and cooling dealerships in my area to see which one had the best prices on smart thermostats, and the installation of them. I finally found one that had just the price I was willing to spend, so I scheduled an HVAC appointment for the installation of the smart thermostat I was about to purchase. I am sad to have to see my old dial thermostat go after all these years, but, it is time to get with the times and be up to date on the HVAC technology available! It will make my life much easier for sure.
