Leaving thermostat discipline to HVAC technology

I guess I’m just tired of dealing with being the air conditioning sheriff. That’s pretty much what it comes down to. I’m done with trying to get everyone in my house to pull the same way when it comes to saving on heating and cooling costs. We totally have the heating costs wired so that’s not a problem. But there is also zero effort needed when it comes to keeping the heating costs in check. This is because we live in a region where we just don’t have much demand at all from the heat pump for heat. Of course, it’s completely the opposite the other 8 months of the year. But really, it’s always been about the four month period during the summer that the air conditioning costs get out of hand. I would have family meetings, provide incentives, show the utility bills and just basically plead with my family to help me. But that just didn’t happen. There would be a sort of disingenuous effort in order to keep dad’s head from exploding. But then it was right back to no thermostat discipline or any regard for what all that air conditioning was costing us. So I just had the HVAC company install a smart thermostat and that will be that. I’m disabling the manual mode for the smart thermostat and letting it run the show when it comes to the heating and cooling of my house. If anyone has a problem with that, they can talk to the HVAC technology. I’m out of the business of managing the quality heating and air of my home because the smart thermostat will do it better.
