When I walked into the house the other day, it was freezing inside.
I went into my bedroom and my wife was there on the bed covered with a few blankets and watching one of her favorite cooking show contests.
I asked why she had the A/C system cranked up and she immediately told me there was no way she would crank the air conditioning that much. She said she tried numerous times to get the thermostat to go back to a sufficient temperature, but it kept reverting back to ice-cold temperatures over and over again. She said the HVAC system was on the fritz and she didn’t know why. I told her she should have told me, but she said she didn’t want to bother me at work. Honestly, I wouldn’t have minded rushing home early to fix such an issue. I tried replacing the batteries to the thermostat and that didn’t help either. There definitely was something wrong, so I rushed to the store and looked at some of the modern thermostats. They had a really nice smart thermostat and I thought that might be something we would like to have. When I got home, I showed my wife the new smart thermostat I purchased, and she asked me what I was waiting for! I hurried to install the thing after watching a short installation video. It was simple enough and before I knew it, I had the thing connected and working. Suddenly, I was able to set the temperature control settings and the HVAC system responded accordingly. So it really was just the old thermostat that was the problem.
