I recently came up with a bit of extra money. I decided to handle some needed home upkeep and improvements. My fiance, Jess, has been on me for nearly a year to get the exterior of our home painted. We needed to replace the carpets in the dining room and in our bedroom. I took care of all the arrangements, and we hoped to have sufficient funds leftover to make some upgrades on the HVAC system. I had been done a great deal of research on the advancements in the HVAC industry. I was amazed by the features and innovations. I figured out that I wanted a smart thermostat. Our family takes vacations every year, so a smart thermostat would be ideal for us! If we installed a smart thermostat, we would no longer need to pay someone to go to the house just to adjust the temperature while we’re gone. I have large fish tanks, so we need to monitor the HVAC operation in order to maintain even temperatures. We have tried to figure out the best way to handle the heating and cooling, to take care of the fish. I looked into the price of a smart thermostat, and knew we could afford it. I added the thermostat to my list of renovations, and called an HVAC contractor to set up an installation date. It felt so rewarding to invest in the modernization of our home. I was able to set up a date for the following week. I couldn’t wait to try out our brand new smart thermostat and take advantage of such a modern convenience.
