My kids are super into their phones and technology. They’ve grown up with the evolving technology over the past 20 years, so it’s no wonder their so smart and knowledgeable about all things tech. A few years ago, I remember my kids begging me to create a Facebook page. I dragged my feet and hated the idea of sharing my personal information on the internet. Eventually, they created a page for me and set me up with all my old friends. Surprisingly, I’ve grown to love it! Recently, my kids have been talking to me about upgrading my HVAC system to a smart thermostat. I need to replace the whole HVAC system regardless, as it’s over 16 years old anyone. They’re convinced that I need to upgrade the thermostat as well. According to them, a smart thermostat can be connected to the wifi and accessed through a cell phone. This seemed a bit overwhelming and complicated to someone like me, but they continued to press the issue for the smart thermostat. Since the smart thermostat can be accessed through a cell phone, I could change the temperature whenever I wanted. I could adjust the temperature before I even got home from work if I wanted! The smart thermostat also showed how efficient my HVAC system was running, and would notify me of any concerns. This all sounded fantastic, but I needed help installing it. Thankfully, my kids are planning on purchasing the smart thermostat for me and installing it for me. They’re going to sit down with me and teach me how to use my new smart thermostat.
