The mere fact that I can’t figure out my new thermostat makes me feel extremely embarrassed.
I purchased a smart thermostat because everyone raved about it, but I must admit that I’ve been struggling to figure out how to make it function properly.
There are simply too many buttons to choose from! It’s just a little bit overwhelming at times, and it’s a lot more complicated than my dial thermostat. I don’t get how this new technology is supposed to make things simpler, but in some ways, I feel like it just complicates things. Personally, I believe that my old dial thermostat was better because it served the same purpose. I don’t need my thermostat to be smart, I just need it to function as a thermostat. After receiving the smart thermostat as a gift from my granddaughter, who described it as the cutting-edge in heating and cooling technology, I installed it. Up until the point where I actually tried to use it, that sounded nice. She assisted me in setting it up, and as she did so I realized how easy it had actually been. I don’t know how she did it, but she breezed through the setup procedure like it was nothing. However, even after it had been set up, I was unable to operate it. I told her that I wanted my old dial thermostat back, and she assisted me in making that happen. She came in handy, and I’m glad she did because I would have had to hire a heating and cooling technician who wouldn’t have been necessary.
