The very first full month of having the smart thermostat was evidence of that
I’m glad we have the latest in HVAC technology when it comes to our smart thermostat. But I still feel like I waited too long to bring this sort of HVAC technology into our home to pair with our residential HVAC. I’d known about smart thermostat technology for a long time. But I was still sort of convinced that I could end up buying an obsolete piece of HVAC technology. This was due to the fact that I have purchased the latest version of technology in the past, only to find that it was outdated in less than a year. I certainly didn’t want to do that when it came to the heating and cooling of my home. Plus, I had spent a fair amount of time getting comfortable with the digital thermostat. It took me a few years before I took the time to program that digital thermostat. But once I did, boy it sure saved me a ton of money. Where we live, the HVAC cooling is the big HVAC issue. So by programming the digital thermostat, I was able to not over cool an empty house. For the longest time after the smart thermostat came out, I thought that my way was just as good. Well, I stand corrected. The smart thermostat does a much better job of eliminating waste when it comes to HVAC cooling. The very first full month of having the smart thermostat was evidence of that. I did nothing else than leave the smart thermostat alone for that first month. And it still ended up saving me nearly 15 percent in HVAC cooling costs.
