My wife did something completely unexpected for us for Christmas this year.
Usually she gets me fishing or hunting gear, or some kind of fancy sweater that I will never wear.
Last year she got me a whole bunch of fancy cologne and aftershave that I haven’t worn once. So usually she wastes a whole lot of money at Christmas. This year, though, she did something that I completely approve of. She did a whole lot of online research about different kinds of smart thermostat systems and then she made the decision about which one to get. If you know my wife, then you know that making decisions is not a strong point of hers. And so having her make a good decision about a new thermostat system for our home was really a big deal. I know it sounds silly, but it meant a lot to me that she took the time and made the effort to read about HVAC systems and smart thermostat units so that she could get the right one for us. I know that she probably found the HVAC blogs and websites to be the most boring things that she had ever seen. But I have to say that I’m impressed with her choice in a thermostat so far. I can now adjust the heating and air conditioning in our house with an app on my smartphone that’s connected to our HVAC system through wifi. I love the fact that the smart thermostat is going to save us lots of money on our heating and cooling bills in the long run.
