So my family plus myself all appreciate travel. I am fortunate that my wife and I can afford to take our kids on vacations at least twice a year, as many other families can’t even afford one. Both of us love to take them overseas so they can meet new people, and see unusual cultures outside of our own. I want my kids to see the world differently, compared to other children that see otherwise. I have three daughters, all teenagers – so they can really start to appreciate all the trips we go on. One thing that actually helps when we are traveling is having peace of mind about our heating and cooling system! We installed a smart temperature control about three years ago now, and it actually was one of the best investments we have ever made for our home. I love that whenever we leave the country, we don’t have to worry about coming home to a house that is hot and humid! We can turn the air conditioner on from one of our smartphones while we are on the plane home. It makes the traveling experience so much better, coming home and being greeted with cool air. Both of us don’t have to pay a ton on our energy bills either, because we don’t have the Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system running the whole time we are gone! It was a little pricey to install at first, I won’t lie – but overall, it has been a successful investment for us.
