T.G.I.F! Happy Friday and Happy MLK Day!
This week has definitely been a dreary one. The good news is, it looks like the weekend is going to be BEAUTIFUL! I hope everyone gets an opportunity to get out and enjoy the mild weather and a little bit of sunshine.
In addition, this is a holiday weekend for some. With gas prices being as low as they are, it seems like a road trip may be in order. Who would have ever thought that we would see gas under $2.00 a gallon. I had to try and “stuff” $27.50 worth of gas in my gas tank… usually it is around $40.
As I was thinking about my last trip to Myrtle Beach, I remembered how nice it was to be able to control my thermostat at my house with my iphone. Basically, I turned off the ac when I left. When I started my journey back, I was able to turn it back on, and it was nice and cool when I arrived. This works in the winter for heat too!
So, if you would like to be able to have that kind of flexibility, you may want to look into the WI-FI thermostats that are available. These types of thermostats are great for regulating your air conditioning and heating system where ever you have a connection to the internet. This includes your smart phone, tablet, or computer. In addition, the thermostats that are on the market now, are extremely easy to program.
Of course, Lowe’s and Home Depot have consumer versions of these programmable, wi-fi thermostats. Usually, they don’t have as much functionality as the thermostats that are available through licensed air conditioning and heating contractors. They also get a shorter warranty period! If you buy a thermostat from Lowe’s or Home Depot, the Honeywell’s Limited Warranty is only 1 year. If you purchase your Honeywell thermostat from a licensed contractor, it comes with a 5 year Limited Warranty. We are also able to come to your home to wire it up, and help you set up your online connection.
I must also mention that these are great for rental properties and for businesses.

I hope everyone has a great weekend. As my friend Kathy would say, “PEACE!”
