Not only are homes becoming more energy efficient, but they are also becoming more technologically advanced. Smart televisions, wireless speakers, and digital thermostats all have Wifi options and make life just a little easier. When my hubby and I bought our first home a few months ago, we knew that we would want a thermostat that we could connect to using an app on our phone. After doing a lot of research, we came across Honeywell products. It was a brand I was already familiar with because they also have home alarms and other consumer products. They seemed to have a good reputation, so we decided on a 7 day programmable thermostat.
We have a forced air HVAC unit which is about 20 years old, so when the thermostat was connected by the heating company, they also had to update a fuse in the main heating unit to be compatible with the thermostat. Fast forward a few months later and Honeywell asked us to test out their latest technology, the Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat, which is actually something we had our eyes on. I love new gadgets with tons of customizable features, and the Honeywell Smart Thermostat offers just that! I know what you are thinking- do you really NEED a thermostat that changes colors and tells your the outdoor temperature? Maybe not, but I LOVE IT. This thermostat can tell us what the temperature and humidity is outside, allows me to program a vacation setting when we are away, and can be accessed through my smartphone or iPad. Additionally, I can change the color scheme to suit my mood, style, decor, or holiday! With two little girls, this is our favorite feature because it is like another part of the house we can decorate!
When it came to install, my hubby watched the Honeywell Smart Wifi Thermostat YouTube video which showed him everything he needed to change our old thermostat with the new one. My hubby isn’t the handiest of men, but he is a quick learner and can do just about anything after watching a YouTube video. My brother, on the other hand, can do just about any mechanical job with his eyes closed. When I showed him the new thermostat, he didn’t even hesitate to install it and took on the challenge. Within 15-20 minutes, the new thermostat was installed and ready to be set up. Since we previously had a Honeywell Wifi Thermostat, we already had an account and just had to add the new unit to the account and set up our heating and cooling preferences. Then, I added the new thermostat to the app on my phone, and it was time to choose our favorite color!
