Sometimes I have to sort of just stop myself and get my head around just how much technology I lean on these days.
I don’t think I could even change the oil on my car anymore.
There is so much tech to automobiles these days. And of course, I have all sorts of devices and screens that I use throughout the day. Currently I’m even turning over the thermostat in my house to technology. The smart thermostat is the latest in HVAC technology for us. We replaced the HVAC equipment a few years ago with state of the art HVAC technology when it comes to residential HVAC. However, I balked on the smart thermostat. I still wasn’t exactly convinced that this was the sort of thermostat I wanted in my house. Well, having had a smart thermostat for just a few months now, I could not have been more mistaken. I’m so glad that my wife dragged me to that dinner party I didn’t want to go to. The host actually had a smart thermostat and went on and on about how great it was. This piqued my interest and I spoke with an HVAC professional about the benefits of the smart thermostat. That’s pretty much all it took and I had an HVAC technician come out to install a smart thermostat. The difference was fairly immediate. The HVAC technician loaded some very basic heating and cooling parameters. Then, the smart thermostat did the rest. The very first month, I saved 15 percent of my HVAC utility bills. And, I don’t have to watch the thermostat like a hawk anymore to keep the heating and cooling costs down.
