A reminder flashed on my phone’s screen, all thanks to technology where I could easily set reminders on my Wi-Fi-enabled thermostat.
I could access all the information on it, including making adjustments to the home HVAC system, through an application on my phone.
With the old dial thermostat, this would not be possible. The challenge was that I was miles away from home, had missed last year’s heater maintenance, and knew the furnace needed servicing. The only thing in my control at the time was implementing one of the energy-saving tips: turn the temperature to the lowest possible when nobody was in the house. The hydronic heating system provides quality heating, and this was the first time I had considered other types of heaters. Not to mention the heated floors in the bathroom, which encourage me to take long showers even during the cold season because the indoor comfort is on another level. The heat pump proved costly buying the device and the heating dealership service charge, but it was the best decision I ever made. I had gotten a discount from the heating business since it was during their grand opening. The HVAC repairman did an impeccable job on the furnace/heater installation. Even the technician who came for the first boiler repair commended the job. I would have to wait ten days until I got home because I was sure nothing could go wrong in such a short period. I also thought of upgrading to a hybrid heating system, but that would entail purchasing another heat and AC product, so I would need to ponder on it some more. The one thing that would stay the same was the HVAC maintenance schedule.
