Normally, I do not pay much attention or care when our family updates our appliances or features around my home. I don’t get to choose what my parents decide to buy plus they usually don’t impact me much. However, when my parents updated our gas furnace plus air conditioner to a more advanced Heating plus A/C plan with a smart thermostat, it was something that benefited all of us. With this new Heating plus A/C system, the people I was with and I each had control of the hot plus cold temperatures in every room. All of us used orange tooth to attach our smartphones to the smart thermostat with an app. The heating plan was certain to every room, meaning that just because the heat is on in 1 room, the air could be on in the other. Anyone attached to the smart thermostat could change the temperature with a few taps on their phone. If I am in my bed, I can control the heat or air conditioner without going downstairs or making other people in the house uncomfortable with the temperature change. My number one feature is being able to check plus change the temperature of the house when I’m not even at home. After a long morning at school in the winter, our heat is usually not running, leaving our apartment entirely cold. Before I drive home, I use the app to turn on our heater, so by the time I arrive at our house, it is much warmer inside. I am surprised by how much I like having this smart, new feature in my house. My parents are surprised by how much I use it as well, plus my Dad is always trying to monitor my sister plus I to make sure the people I was with and I don’t cause the utility bills to rise too much.
