Refuge from the heat

I’ve been living here for almost 2 years now. I made it through last summer with just ceiling fans. But this summer, with two of us in the house, the need for central air in our little home became glaringly obvious. Our furnace was due for removal anyways, so we decided to do it all at once. And now, I am writing to you from our little climate-controlled piece of heaven.

Reader, meet Bess. She’s our new learning thermostat. It’s only her first day, so she is still adjusting to her surroundings. But over time, she will learn our habits and keep our home happy while we’re away. She looks pretty sleek, and everything makes so much more sense coming from her! Kelvin and I can both control her via our iPhones or our computers. Here’s to many happy years together!
