I honestly took offense when my nephews were talking trash about my programmable thermostat.
I was proud of that thermostat as I installed it on my own and I was able to program it just right.
Rarely do I ever need to adjust my thermostat and that thing has saved me a small fortune over the years. They were talking about how that ancient thermostat would never be as good as their fancy smart thermostat. I didn’t think them saying something so childish would bother me, but it did. My brother always had to have the best things and here he was spoiling his children like crazy. When they said their thermostat had voice control technology, I actually became a little bit jealous. They said they could even ask the thermostat what the weather forecast was and it would speak back to them and let them know. I finally had enough and decided to look into the smart thermostats myself. I was surprised to learn that you actually can save up to 15% on your energy bills when you use one of these smart thermostats. That reason alone was actually good enough to make me want to invest in one of these thermostats. So I ended up getting one and it was probably the best decision I ever made. I also decided to one up my brother. While he had a cool smart thermostat that would tell him the weather forecast and things like that, my thermostat has a beautiful touchscreen and has all the voice control options as well!
