My family spends the majority of our time out of the house. My husband and I both work full time jobs that often demand overtime. The kids have school, and they are involved in sports. With our hectic schedule, there is very little time leftover to keep up with household tasks. It’s always a challenge to make sure the lawn is mowed, the dirty clothes laundered and the dishes washed. I have trouble making time to get groceries, and we usually eat in the car. Because of all of the demands on our time, we’ve done everything possible to streamline the operation of the household. We don’t want to come home to a problem, face complicated repairs or deal with professional servicemen. We hope to enjoy a perfectly comfortable and properly functioning home. One of the best investments we’ve made was to purchase a wifi thermostat. The thermostat saves time and money, and helps us to troubleshoot and prevent issues. For the first week after installation, the thermostat kept track of the adjustments we made. It learned our schedule and preferences and built a program to accommodate us. We now rarely need to make any kind of adjustment. The smart thermostat automatically alters temperature when the house is empty to conserve energy, yet always welcomes us home to ideal comfort. If I need to make a change, I have easy access through an app on my smartphone. Doesn’t matter if I’m at work, sitting in the bleachers of a soccer game or curled up in bed, I can manage the heating and cooling system. Plus, I get notifications when it’s time to schedule maintenance, change the air filters, or if there’s a concern.
