I had no idea how much money I had been losing on my utility bill until I got my programmable temperature control. The housing on the original weather conditions control unit had begun to crack, and I was feared the thermometer wouldn’t read properly anymore. I instantly told my landlord about it, and he came by and told me he would have a new temperature control unit installed by the end of the week. My landlord and I get along quite well; I’m pretty experienced with home repairs, so I only call him if it’s absolutely necessary or if I have no knowledge of something. Because the two of us have such a wonderful relationship, he was kind enough to ask me if I’d like anything in particular. I told him whatever was best for him, but that a programmable thermostat would be perfect. My parents have one, and they swear it saves them a lot of money. I told him that it could help save him money too, as I was getting married and moving within the year. He could keep the utility bill lower when the apartment was empty between occupants. He said this thermostat sounds like a good idea, and sure enough, by week’s end, I had a programmable temperature control. I was skeptical about the savings, but I put in my schedule, and in the first month alone, I’ve already saved enough money for an extra week’s worth of groceries! I can’t believe it! I told my landlord about it when he came by to pick up the rent. He was so happy, and he said the device wasn’t even that pricey. I’m so ecstatic to have this little temperature control that saves me greatly!
