Papa can’t turn on the thermostat

Back in my day is how my papa always talks.

  • My papa loves to talk about how it used to be when he was a kid.

I get it, times are different now that there is more technology. But I don’t want to hear about it every time I visit him. My papa loves to bring up the up-to-date inventions around. Papa will tell me how spoiled my kids are with their TVs, iPads, and costly air conditioning system. My papa doesn’t understand the up-to-date heating and air conditioning system systems. Unfortunately he is in a new home. The home came with a up-to-date Heating, Ventilation and air conditioning equipment. Funny thing is that my papa won’t turn it on. Papa doesn’t understand it. I figured out what it was. The home came with a smart thermostat. He doesn’t own any smart products like a smartphone or iPad. He won’t know what an app is and how to download it. So operating the wireless thermostat control is no go. My dad could manually operate it. But the thermostat doesn’t look like an aged dial model. It has many more buttons, options and schedules to be set. My papa know it is too advanced for him. So he just goes without heating and cooling. Isn’t that insane? I believe I might either need to teach him or rip off the up-to-date thermostat. I could buy my papa an older model to task with the Heating and Air Conditioning. Anything to help really.
