I guess when you become an adult, you start wanting different things as gifts. Back in the day when I was younger, I wanted jewelry and flowers and fancy clothes and things like that for my birthday and for anniversaries. Now that I’m older and my husband and I have been married for over fifteen years, the kinds of gifts that I like are totally different! For instance, last year for my birthday I asked for a new washing machine. And then this year for our anniversary, I decided to ask my husband for one of those new smart thermostats that everyone is talking about. We currently have a digital programmable thermostat installed at our house and while it does the job with our heating and cooling system, I know that smart thermostats are even better. I’ve done a lot of research about smart thermostats online, and I know that you can control them by installing an easy to use app on your smartphone. When you think about it, having your HVAC system controlled by a remote unit really makes a whole lot of sense. I mean, when you’re at work, you can turn your heating or A/C up or down, depending on what the weather and the humidity is. Plus, you can make sure that your house will be nice and warmed up or cooled down whenever you get home. I like the whole idea of our HVAC system being controlled by a smart thermostat that learns our schedules and also can help us to save some money.
