I was really happy this last birthday. Honestly, I had been saving forever how much I wanted a touchscreen thermostat. I didn’t even care if it was a smart thermostat or a programmable one, I just wanted something fancy that looked cool in my home and did a good job controlling my HVAC system. Well, this past birthday, my wife got me a smart thermostat with a touchscreen and it’s actually the present that I value the most. I never even realized all these fancy options with smart thermostats either. I didn’t know that the smart thermostat would be able to learn my schedule and program itself according to my preferences. It’s such a brilliant design. I also enjoy the fact that I can control my HVAC system from just about anywhere. So long as I am getting an internet connection, I can make changes. It’s especially great when I’m heading back home from work. I never dreamed I would be able to adjust the temperature control to be just right before getting back home. I usually get back before everybody else does since I leave for work so early in the morning. I have the thermostat so it goes to minimal temperature control settings by the time my wife leaves for work and then I get it back just right when I get back, it’s so wonderful. Of course, if I’m meeting with friends afterwork at the bar or something, I can make sure the temperature control doesn’t go back to normal settings until my wife gets home. It’s so amazing that I can do that, and I still enjoy the touchscreen too, it’s so fancy!
