I also have no ability to program my thermostat to turn down whenever I leave for work.
I adore the furnace in my home, it keeps me warm, plus I have never had trouble with it, and when I first moved into my home, my brother warned me that I would actually have trouble with the furnace, however he told me that I would actually spend a fortune in maintenance calls plus parts. He also warned me that my furnace wouldn’t be particularly efficient, which would drive up the cost of my weekly bills. I was surprised that I have had no problems with maintenance. In the few years that I have lived here, I have never had to call an Heating, Ventilation plus A/C worker to repair my furnace, and also, the cost of my furnace running isn’t terrible! The only trouble that I have with my furnace is that the thermostat is particularly old plus terrible. It is an old thermostat that has a needle to adjust the temperature. The needle is kind of hard to read, which means I never guess exactly what temperature my furnace is heating to. I also have no ability to program my thermostat to turn down whenever I leave for work. Also, my a/c is not linked to the thermostat, plus it has its own separate dial for cooling, which means I might forget to turn my furnace off. I am considering upgrading my thermostat to a smart thermostat. It would be a important jump from the current situation, but it would be pretty cool to adjust the temperature from my iPhone. The Heating, Ventilation plus A/C company gave to install the thermostat plus show me how to use it! I was told that I can even keep my old furnace!
