This is a typical schedule

My husband and I both work full-time jobs, with extremely long hours and a great deal of responsibility and stress.  Our three children are all involved in competitive sports and extracurricular activities. Trying to keep up with the demands our schedule and home is just about impossible.  We are always behind on buying groceries, cleaning, laundry and household maintenance. There is no time to handle issues with home systems and appliances. We need to keep all equipment working safely, reliably and efficiently.  I’ve enrolled in a maintenance plan with a local HVAC contractor to optimize the performance of the furnace and air conditioner. A licensed technician inspects, cleans and tunes all components to promote dependability and longevity.  During routine service last year, the technician recommended that I upgrade my ancient thermostat to a modern, wifi alternative. At first, I was a bit reluctant because of the cost. Once I realized the many convenient features, I was eager to have the smart thermostat installed.  With wifi connectivity, I can access control of the heating and cooling system from my phone or laptop. I’m able to lower or raise temperature settings to conserve energy when my family is away from home and ensure perfect comfort when we return. Plus, the thermostat built a program according to our typical schedule for even greater convenience.  I get alerts for necessary maintenance, filter change requirements, power outages and temperature fluctuations. It provides helpful information, such as energy tracking, energy saving tips, and humidity levels. The smart thermostat makes it much easier to manage our busy lives.
