Those days are gone though and it is time to roll with the changes and learn about these new smart thermostats.
My cousin got a new smart thermostat which seems to be a little too smart and is overthinking the cooling process. I set it for 72 F last night and when I woke up it was set to 76 F. I guess it learns her patterns and adjusts itself accordingly, but we just want the thing to stay at 72 F during the night. I need a college degree in smart thermostat controls to figure this thing out as there are about 15 different screens on it to select from. I thought I had the auto sensing setting turned off but it still changes the setting without me touching it. I guess I need to find the smart thermostat owner’s manual and leaf through it to figure out what I am doing wrong. I think the neighbor helped install the system here a year ago so I may go ask him if he knows. He works in the HVAC industry and must know how to program these smart thermostats. I’m still used to the old dial units where you just move the lever up or down to change the setting. Those days are gone though and it is time to roll with the changes and learn about these new smart thermostats. This one my cousin has is round with bright green LED lights on it and looks like something out of Star Trek. I am going to look online at the HVAC company that makes the thermostat and see if they have information on how to program it. I’ll figure this out one way or another.
