Once these smart tstats are installed and "programmed", you never have to touch it again.deluxster wrote: ↑Jan 7th, 2018 11:08 amThat would be the logical solution but these Govt programs always make things harder on the consumer. Similar to what you said, they should test the HVAC system and select the best/optimal TStat. However, the choices provided is more of subjective selection due to preferences of UI and simplicty/complexity of the unit. I am still torn as my Mom's house does not have a HRV and I don't see one in the foreseeable future but it looks like I may base my decison on ease of use for her.
If you're worried about your mom not being able to learn how to use it, you can install the app, log in to the account and be the one that configures it remotely for her.
