I’ve been spending a fortune to heat and cool my house.
One of the biggest reasons is my kids.
Every time they get home from school in the afternoon, they adjust the thermostat and turn down the temperature so it’s cold and frigid in the house. I love the house being cold and frigid too, but turning the temperature down 4° every day has a significant impact on the heating and cooling system and the monthly budget for our electricity bill. I prefer to keep the house set at a comfortable temperature of 74°. I like when it’s 68 in the house too, but my electric bill is twice as much when I turn the temperature down to that low number. I was doing pretty well when I was working from home because the kids couldn’t change the temperature. When my boss sent me back to the office, the kids got home from school with no one there. I noticed an increase in the monthly allowances 2 months in a row and that’s when I decided to buy a smart thermostat. A smart thermostat is a really good device that can help me save money and control the indoor temperatures. A smart thermostat learns our behavior and adjusts its settings based on the things that the kids and I do everyday. The smart thermostat is not only programmable, but it also comes with a considerable amount of features. The smart thermostat tells me when it’s time to change my air filter and it also has a locking passcode so no one else can access the system when I am not at home.
