I have had a smart temperature control in our household for quite a while now and it has easily served myself and others well.
However, recently the smart temperature control had seen its day and it broke down for good.
I was trying to figure out if I wanted to get a brand new smart temperature control or just replace the smart temperature control with an older temperature control. That was when I remembered that I had an old dial temperature control that was still in perfect working order. The old dial temperature control was almost as good as new, and since I knew everything there was to know about installing any kind of temperature control, I just took out the broken smart temperature control and put in the old dial temperature control! I had the dial temperature control up and running in a short amount of time. That is how quickly I can do this task. So because of this, I ended up saving myself a nice little chunk of change in having to invest in a smart temperature control again and then having to contact the local heating and a/c device company to send out a certified heat and cooling system specialist to install the up-to-date smart temperature control that I may have bought. A smart temperature control is something that although I can install the actual product, I would not be able to do the extra bits in programming it to work the apps that are on the computer and cell phone. So that was an extra cost I saved by going back to the old dial temperature control all by myself!
