I’m glad to turn over the HVAC unit to newer HVAC technology

The very first month I let go of controlling the thermostat once the HVAC company installed the smart thermostat was all it took

The older I get, the less I try to control. Control is a funny thing really. It’s really more illusion than it is fact. There is, in fact, very little that we control. Now, we might work hard to manipulate outcomes in our favor and view that as control but again, I’m not sure that counts. That’s just manipulation which counts on other parties to be led, fooled or directed. That was a big part of my life each day inside the zone controlled HVAC of the corporate office I held so dear. When I was young, success meant money and achievement. So I went hard after that always plotting, strategizing and overall manipulating my way into better positions. Before too long, I had an office with a great view of the city and my own thermostat. But that’s when it all began to feel quite hollow in fact. I started to see the charade that was my life. So much of what I valued was really just not true or real in any valid sort of way. That has changed me at my center and I’m learning to live more honestly and give up what I perceived as control. Even managing the quality heating and air in my home is no longer something that I control. I’ve turned all that over to the smart thermostat. This wifi thermostat that we have does a far better job of managing the heating and cooling than I’ll ever be able to do. The very first month I let go of controlling the thermostat once the HVAC company installed the smart thermostat was all it took. I saved like an additional 15 percent on HVAC costs so letting go is good.
