When everybody that I knew started getting a different kind of control unit I didn’t want to be left out, everybody was talking about how good smart control units were and everybody from my mom, my sister, and even my grandparents were all talking about the new smart control units that were available at all of the local heating and cooling businesses! This was the newest technology that nobody had ever used before and we were all gleeful to get our hands on it.
Everybody else’s excitement was only helping to feed our excitement and I could not wait to try it out.
When my boyfriend got one first I asked him what it was like and he told me nothing but good things about it. I spoke to some more of our family members and they also told me how much they appreciated theirs since I decided to go ahead and buy one for myself too. I didn’t want to be left out after all! After I got the brand new control unit I installed it myself just as the directions said so. That was something else that I liked about the smart control unit was that it didn’t require a HVAC specialist and didn’t have any complicated directions. However, when I installed mine I found that it wasn’t entirely working. I wasn’t even able to use it to adjust the temperature of our home. I thought at first that I had just installed it improperly and so I uninstalled and reinstalled it. I did this numerous times and each time it still didn’t work. I was truly disappointed and I got someone to come over and take a look at it and help me get it entirely working. After a while I just gave up on it. I was unhappy and told the rest of our friends and family our disappointment. They were insistent that I just got a lemon of a smart control unit and that was why I wasn’t entirely working. Maybe that was the case but that experience was enough to make me just like to stick to my traditional control unit.
