It regularly bothered myself and others when I would visit our uncle at his house, and he was regularly going to adjust the temperature control settings every 10 minutes to an hour as if he could never get comfortable! I asked him a few times if he ever thought about getting a programmable control unit, although he said it wasn’t necessary.
His reasoning was that his dial control equipment worked just nice plus hence there was no reason to go for an update.
I even mentioned the energy savings he could have with a programmable control equipment because the heating plus air conditioning would turn on plus off as needed with a control equipment to care about that. He still said he would have to pass! That was a long time ago. More recently I got so sick of it that I ended up buying him a smart control unit, then now this style of control equipment is actually much better than an official programmable control unit. It has all kinds of advanced features such as remote temperature control, geofencing, plus learning mode. It’s a control equipment that’s so simple to use plus it programs itself; but before you suppose it, you won’t even have to adjust the temperature control settings undoubtedly often… Then well, our uncle liked the sound of being able to adjust the temperature control remotely. I realized that this was going to be his thing, monitoring the heating plus air conditioning via his iphone all the time plus decreasing the temperature control settings more easily. When everything was set up, he was passionate about it plus it was also an immense plus for him that he started saving a lot on his energy costs.
