I recently spent three weeks down south. It was a glorious split from the winter weather that I am used to. When I first arrived at my mom’s house, the rapidly changing temperatures were in the 60’s during the afternoon as well as upper 40’s at night. That next week my pal and I enjoyed days of sun as well as mid-sixties. Her Springtime flowers were already in bloom as well as there were up-to-date leaves forming on the trees. I went down to help her out due to some medical problems as well as once she was fully reuseed, I needed to come back home. Three days before I was set to return, my home town was hit with a huge snowstorm. This wasn’t out of the realm of possibilities although it is never welcomed at the end of December. My largest regret during my return trip was that I hadn’t taken my Heating plus A/C dealer’s advice earlier in the year. He had made a recommendation to have a programmable Smart Thermostat installed. It was a little overpriced so I opted not to listen. Now, I would be returning to a honestly freezing apartment with no way to adjust it ahead of time. I don’t have any pets as well as live by myself. I didn’t see a reason to keep the apartment any warmer than 55 degrees while I was away. My thinking was that I could save on energy during my absence but this now meant that I would have to wait for the apartment to hot up when I got home. If I had listened, I would have been able to adjust the settings remotely with my cell PC as well as I would be going home to a nice hot house. I will be calling my Heating plus A/C supplier once I am home as well as having the replacement done as soon as possible. I learned my lesson for sure.
