The thermostat was loose

I had the most annoying issue with my smart thermostat recently -it kept falling off the wall! Everytime I walked past it, the smart thermostat was sitting on the floor instead of mounted, as it should have been, to the wall in the hallway.

I finally figured out why – the smart thermostat was loose on the mounting! I didn’t screw it in properly! What I am talking about is the metal holders it hooks on and mounts to.

So, I got my screwdrivers , and screwed those holders into where they should have been when I first installed the smart thermostat. This is exactly why I really should have called the local HVAC supplier to send out one of their technicians to install the smart thermostat! I did save a few dollars by doing it myself. But I just didn’t get it completely right. Now I have figured out why the smart thermostat was not mounted onto the wall in the hallway properly. It now sits comfortably and is no longer falling onto the ground every time I walk past it! Otherwise, my smart thermostat has worked perfectly. It has saved me a lot of money on energy use and made my life a lot less complex when running my central heating and cooling unit.
