I really need to upgrade my computer. The reason I need to do this is because I am wanting to get a smart thermostat. And when I would buy the smart thermostat I would not be able to use the app to control it on the current computer I have because it is outdated. The whole idea of me getting a smart thermostat is because I want to have the convenience of being able to control my central heating and air conditioning system from my computer while I am working from home. A lot of times the temperatures in my house varies and I have to get up and down to keep adjusting the thermostat accordingly. If I have a smart thermostat and the app on my computer I will not have to do this any longer. I will be able to just adjust that thermostat while I am sitting at the computer working. Also by getting a smart thermostat I can also put the app on my cell phone which will make it so I can turn the central heating and air conditioning system off and on from being away from the house like when I am at work. This will save me money on my monthly electric bills by not running the heating and air conditioning system when I am not home. I can turn it off when I leave and then turn on the central heating and air conditioning system when I am on my way home. When I walk in the door the heating or the cooling will be working and flowing great.
