I’m not sure it’s supposed to work this way.

When the HVAC company asked about a new thermostat to go with my new HVAC system, I thought it was a great idea.

  • They told me I could get a smart thermostat as part of the HVAC package, and it wouldn’t cost anything extra.

They input phone numbers for the HVAC company, my husband’s cell phone, and my cell phone. They also pre-programmed the number for the police station. The HVAC technician showed my husband how to use the app that connected our cell phones and main computer to the smart thermostat. I thought working the thermostat was going to be super easy, but I was wrong. I hated the thermostat after only a week. I would program the air conditioning to turn on at 10 AM and turn off at midnight. I had the temperature set for seventy-two. Every day I had had to reprogram the thermostat. It was shutting off and on at odd hours, and the temperature was dropping down to sixty-eight. That was entirely too cool when I was the only one in the house. I called the HVAC company and told them I had a problem with the air conditioning unit, or the thermostat. I wasn’t sure which. I told them exactly what was happening. They told me it was the thermostat and someone would be at the house shortly. When the HVAC technician arrived, he had to fiddle with the thermostat and make it so it responded only to the commands coming from our cell phones and computer, and not from anyone who had the same model thermostat.
