Thermostat helping us out

My wife and I have been feuding over the thermostat ever since we got married.  I have always tried to turn the thermostat down when I leave for work. I like to put it at fifty, because I want to save energy and money.  As soon as she gets home, she turns up the thermostat hoping to get heat more quickly. I know this doesn’t make sense and I keep trying to tell her that the thermostat is only going to work at a certain speed.  You don’t need the thermostat set any higher than at seventy. She just doesn’t want to hear it. Last week, I woke up and I was covered in sweat. She had forgotten to turn the thermostat back down. The house was suffocatingly hot and I was upset.  If this was the first time, I wouldn’t had been so upset, but I was furious. That was a lot of money we were wasting and a lot of energy. I decided that I was going to buy a new Smart thermostat that evening. I called the HVAC company and I asked them about the Smart thermostat and they told me that I could set the temperature to any degree and I would be able to monitor the thermostat with my cell phone.  I loved this idea. The house will be comfortable, and I can program the Smart Thermostat so it reduces the temperature and turns it back up, even before my wife gets home from work. I can even monitor the temperatures in the house, during the day. I’m sure this will be good for our energy bills, and our marriage. The Smart Thermostat will definitely take some stress off both of us.
