I think my resistance was obviously futile but I held on a long time.
- I also have to add that my wife was one hundred percent in the right when it came to new HVAC technology.
To her credit, she was right from the very start. It has been nearly a decade since she first saw the new smart thermostats at the home improvement store. She was amazed by this HVAC technology. There’s something about electronic gadgets that thrill and interest my wife. If you have any sort of tech thing, she’ll want to hold it and take it for a spin. I don’t get 1 per cent of the functions out of even my phone. But my wife could teach a master class. Still, I resisted when she first wanted to get the smart thermostat. Along with all the things that she’s been right about when it comes to technology, there have been some pretty epic fails as well. So I wasn’t eager to invest in a smart thermostat that would then become obsolete after about a year. I also made the case that I had learned how to program the digital thermostat in order to save money on our HVAC costs. But eventually, my wife wore me down and the HVAC professionals came out to install the smart thermostat. But still, I have to give it up for my wife and I was wrong about thinking I could save as well as the smart thermostat does on utility costs. With the smart thermostat, we save nearly twenty percent more just the very first month over the very best I could ever do.
