For about a year now I have been wanting to get a smart thermostat for my central heating and air conditioning system.
The digital thermostat I had for all these years was great and all, but I wanted something more.
Something that would assist in maybe saving me some energy use to lower the electric bills that I end up always having in the summer months of the year. I was just lazy in getting this smart thermostat going and in place. My wife kept on me about it and then it would eventually slip my mind and I would not do it. I finally got around to it and made it happen! This was about 2 months ago. And let me tell you that the central heating and air conditioning system of mine is running much more efficient. That is first off. Second off, I already noticed a huge difference in my electric bill on its first month. The fact that the smart thermostat can be programmed to go on and off mixed with me myself having control over turning it on and off when I am away from the house is what is causing the energy savings. Rather than having to run the central heating and air conditioning system while I am at work and my wife is at work, I can now have it off the whole day and schedule it to turn back on about 30 minutes before my wife gets home from work. She is home a little earlier than me. So this really works out well.
