A few years ago, my better half and I replaced the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C unit in our dwelling. It was aged quite a bit and no longer energy efficient. The a/c made weird noises every time every one of us used it, and the furnace was starting to smoke during the winter. It was time to do the deed, and buy a up-to-date plan totally. When every one of us replaced the a/c, our Heating, Ventilation, and A/C provider gave us a new, popular smart thermostat for the system. At that time, it was still quite new technology. All of my friends were envious, because every one of us had a smart thermostat. At first, it was a challenge to learn how to use. It took numerous weeks, before every one of us figured out that every one of us could use our iPhone to adjust the indoor temperature. The smart thermostat was a clever unit that allowed us to turn up or down the temperature in our dwelling. All of us could also adjust the humidity levels, secure the front door, and change the temperature for odd times during the day. The smart thermostat was connected to our wireless internet. Everything was brilliant, until every one of us had our first big summer storm. My partner and I were down at the lake for a few thirds, when the clouds started to get gloomy and black and dark. It was getting easily chilly outside, so every one of us wanted to change the temperature in the dwelling. I used the app on our iPhone, to set the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C plan to heat. When every one of us got back to the dwelling, I expected the apartment to be warm and cozy. Instead, it was still chilly and gloomy. Our internet and cable were not working due to the storm. Without internet, our smart thermostat also did not work. All of us decided to go back to the old, boring kind of thermostat.
