If my thermostat didn’t give me reminders, I doubt that I would ever remember to change my air filters! My thermostat is not something that I think about on a regular basis, unless there’s a problem with it.
Of course I notice it if there’s an issue with the heating and cooling in the house.
But other than that, my thermostat is more like one of those “set it and forget” types of things. At this point in my life, I’m really busy with work and the gym and five kids and a husband and church. There are literally things happening all the time, and if I don’t watch it, I could get burned out on things pretty easily! That’s why I don’t need extra stuff to worry about, like the last time I changed my furnace filter or my air conditioning filter. I knew this about myself when we purchased our digital programmable smart thermostat last year, and now I’m glad that I did. I thought about the fact that I’m always forgetting things like taking out the trash and turning the stove off and changing the air filters in our HVAC system. Well, when I saw that one of the features of that particular thermostat was a digital reminder on the display screen and a text to your smartphone from the heating and cooling app, I knew that it was the right thermostat for our family. Anything that can help me remember what I’m doing on a day to day basis is always welcome in my house. When it comes to having a great smart thermostat unit, I can’t stress the importance of it. I think our thermostat really helps with our heating and cooling bills, along with our indoor air quality.
