We broke the smart thermostat when moving the furniture out of the house

My wife and I were really happy when we managed to sell our home.

  • We were able to close on everything and we already had our new home ready to move into.

Well, while we were moving all of our things out to the moving truck, we had a terrible accident with the thermostat. The thermostat is right there in the living room area and can be somewhat tricky to get past without bumping into it. When we were moving the heavy living room furniture, my buddy actually tripped and the furniture slammed into the smart thermostat on the wall and caused it to break! I couldn’t believe it, I paid a good amount of money to get that thermostat. My buddy was apologizing like crazy and said he would pay for the broken thermostat. I told him not to worry about it and said I would handle it. I felt like it was my fault. I should have been more careful too while we were moving that heavy furniture. I just thought it was a shame to have a nice thermostat like that break. I didn’t want to spend a fortune for a new thermostat, so I ended up replacing it with a programmable thermostat. I’m sure if the new property owners want a smart thermostat, they can purchase one on their own. There honestly was nothing in the contract that said they were guaranteed to have a smart thermostat, so I don’t think there will be any issues. I really hope they are not mad about that smart thermostat, but if they are, I guess I can send them a new smart thermostat.
