Upgrading the thermostat changed the look of the house

When I bought a house in Fort Worth, Texas I made the decision to fix it up.

I hated that the house looked kind of like an old farmhouse.

I did everything I could to modernize it. I scraped all my popcorn ceilings, added a coat of mud, sanded, and then painted smooth. I added recessed lighting. I changed the brown carpet to gray tile. I painted all the walls with cool tones. I even added custom furniture pieces of dark wood and fancier couches and chairs to the home. I redid the kitchen with stainless steel appliances, better backsplash, and choice curtains. The house is a blend of farmhouse and modern. One thing that I really feel added a nice final touch was the wall thermostat. There was an old dial thermostat that used a plastic toggle. You could toggle between 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90. That was about it. It wasn’t all that precise and was easy to bump. My husband hit it all the time and couldn’t read the numbers. It looked ugly and clashed with my decor. I talked to the local Fort Worth HVAC business about what I could do. They recommended changing it to a smart thermostat. These modern innovations come with silver surrounds, attractive interfaces, and wireless capability. We can now change the heating and cooling from our phones. It learns cooling behaviors so we don’t even need to lift a finger. Energy tracking, geofencing, air filter alerts, and voice command are other pros to this system. I have to say the appearance of the thermostat still remains my favorite thing.
