I was surprised when my aunt was asking me for some advice about how to get with the times.
I started by telling her she had to get rid of that old flip phone she had. I told her everybody uses smartphones these days. She was hesitant about getting rid of her flip phone because she liked it so much, but she listened. On top of getting her a good smartphone, I told her she had to get a smart thermostat. I told her that the smart thermostat actually comes with many benefits. It is able to learn your preferred temperature control settings without you even having to program the thing. She had a programmable thermostat, but she admitted she liked the idea of having a thermostat she could control remotely. I definitely thought that was one of the most impressive features. Of course the best thing of all was the energy savings. You can easily save up to 15% on your energy bills just by using a smart thermostat. These are definitely the thermostats of the future and there will likely be a time when everybody uses these kinds of thermostats, not only in their homes but in their cars as well. So my aunt went for the smart thermostat upgrade that has voice control technology. She was loving her new thermostat and appreciated how easy it was without having to physically go to the thermostat to adjust the temperature control settings. She’s not completely up with the times yet, but she’s making the right steps. She needs to get a modern car next, preferably a hybrid or an electric car with a nice climate control system.
