My Sister Convinced Me to Get a Smart Thermostat

I loved this feature

My sister has been raving about her smart thermostat ever since she had it installed. At first, I rolled my eyes whenever she went on her tangent about how much she loved it. I wasn’t in the market for a new thermostat, and even if I was, I didn’t see the hype. One afternoon though, I felt obligated to do some research on them because I didn’t know anything about them other than what my sister had told me. When I started my research, I couldn’t believe how affordable smart thermostats were for how efficient they were. The whole point of a smart thermostat was to save a home money long term, because it could be programmed to pick up on a home’s daily heating and air preferences. Essentially, you’d be using less energy. In my mind, I thought something like this would be expensive, but I was pleasantly surprised. I loved the idea that a thermostat could adjust the heat and air whenever you left the house, because there was no point in having a temperature controlled home if you weren’t in it. It would also turn on just before you arrived home. A feature my sister was always bragging about was the remote control from her cell phone. A smart thermostat lets you alter the temperature anywhere at any time. I loved this feature. After doing all my research, I caved and bought myself a smart thermostat! Now, my sister and I are trying to convince our brother to have one installed.
