Let’s take a collective moment of silence for our bank accounts this year, as it’s time to fire up our boilers and keep the cold of winter at bay. Thankfully, I do not fear my heating bill as much as I could have. I’ve been reaping the rewards of last year’s prudent Black Friday purchase – a Tado smart thermostat.
This was my first foray into building a smart home, so there are a few things I’ve learned since. But now that my bills have more than doubled due to the cost of energy, I’m patting my past self on the back for already having this energy saver up and running. However, at the time, my purchase wasn’t entirely motivated by financial incentives.
