Today’s world is really different than it used to be, isn’t it? I remember when the first video games were gaining popularity. They were nothing more than a few squiggly lines on a blank screen. Now, kids play games that look much like real life. It is totally incredible. The evolution of technology has affected virtually every industry. When it comes to a basic household, many homeowners now enjoy the use of digital systems. Not only is everything connected electronically, but things will also be connected wirelessly. Heck, even my own HVAC system is wireless these days. When my son told me to get rid of the dial thermostat on my wall earlier this season, I was confused as to what he meant. I told him I needed that to control my heater and air conditioner. He said that I should get a new thermostat that controls my HVAC units for me. I was definitely intrigued when he explained it fully. He arranged an HVAC specialist to come install a wireless thermostat in my home soon after. It is really cool. I programmed it how I wanted, but it controls itself most of the time. It talks to my heater and air conditioner even though I am not in the home. It’s kind of creepy having an HVAC system that knows whether you are home or not, but I got over that apprehension really rapidly. From this day forward, I am going to never have a dial thermostat for my heating and cooling equipment ever again. Now I need to play these new video games!
