One of the features of the new smart thermostat is the fact that it has an app for the phone
My wife has long been a competitive athlete. She played all sorts of sports growing up and played college soccer as well. However, that competitive spirit isn’t something a person just shuts off. So she continued with all sorts of athletic pursuits after college as well. Me, on the other hand, I like quiet and hanging out in the HVAC cooling. I’m not so into the sweating and exertion that goes with being competitive. I do get out of the HVAC comfort of home for exercise. But it’s to the gym and that too has the heating and cooling I like. My wife’s recent athletic pursuit led to a fairly serious accident. She was taking a training ride on her bike when she fell and was hurt pretty bad. The injuries required surgery and rest. Rest means that she is not in constant motion like she’s accustomed to. So just laying on the couch in the air conditioning has been a real patience tester for her. And we’re in the middle of summer here so the house gets warm. Since I work in a zone controlled HVAC office, I can’t be there to change the thermostat throughout the day. But the HVAC company helped us out by installing a smart thermostat. One of the features of the new smart thermostat is the fact that it has an app for the phone. With that app, my wife can manually control the air conditioning when she gets uncomfortable. This allows her not to have to try to move just to change the thermostat setting.
