When I had a tune-up on our HVAC system last week, the repairman tried to sell me one of the new smart control equipment systems.
I listened to the guy talk to me about why it was going to be a wonderful idea, although I wasn’t fully listening.
After the HVAC repairman left, I decided to use the internet to research the smart control equipment more thoroughly. Smart control equipment requires a Wi-Fi connection. It also requires you to have a phone with space to download the app, and each smart control equipment has an app that coincides with their particular product. A smart control equipment is a good way to save currency on all of your yearly bills throughout the month. A smart control equipment provides accurate information and learns patterns of behavior based on information that the control equipment gathers throughout time. A smart control equipment can also be set up to track yearly energy use. I was particularly interested in learning more about that feature, because I thought that our adolescents were coming home from school and changing the temperature on the control unit. I could not prove it, because the temperature was consistently back at 71° when I got home from work. If I had the ability to track the usage of the control unit, after that I would be able to catch the adolescents if they were not telling the truth. My particular make and model also has a coded password that I can set at any time so the adolescents cannot access the control equipment unless I want them to. I had the repairman come right back to the home the next day to install the system after I learned about all of the good features.
