A reminder about the central heater flashed on my phone’s screen, all thanks to technology where I could easily set reminders on my wi-fi enabled thermostat that synced with my phone.
I could access all the information on it, including making adjustments to the heating and cooling system, through an application on my phone.
With the old dial thermostat, this would not be possible. The challenge was that I was miles away from home, missed last year’s furnace/heater tune-up, and knew that the boiler needed servicing. It had been a while since I contacted the heating and cooling provider. The only thing in my control at the time was implementing one of the energy-saving tips: turn the temperature to the lowest possible when nobody was in the house. The electric furnace provides quality heating, and I had never considered other help with indoor comfort. Not to mention the heated floors in the bathroom, which encouraged me to take long showers even during the cold season because the indoor comfort was on another level. The new HVAC equipment was costly but every bit worth it plus, I had gotten a discount from the heating business since it was during their grand opening. The HVAC technician did an impeccable job on the installation. The HVAC repairman who came for the first boiler repair commended the job. I would have to wait ten days until I got home because I was sure nothing could go wrong in such a short period. I also had a portable space heater that a heating contractor had insisted I purchase just in case my theory was proved wrong. Either way, I would have to contact the heating business without fail, especially when replacing the furnace filter.
