Well, the temperature was pretty nice a few hours ago, but now it’s getting a little bit too warm outside so I’m going to turn on my air conditioning once again and pay the power company’s my hard-earned money. I would like to know how much it costs per minute to run my air conditioning system, that way I can get a grip on my spending each day so I know if I’m spending too much on my climate control in the house. What they need is some kind of meter that shows how much money you’re spending when your air conditioner is turned on. Maybe they can incorporate that somehow into the smart thermostat’s functions so we know exactly how much we’re spending for the month. Wouldn’t it be great to not be surprised when your power bill comes each month? Usually the surprise I get is not a good surprise, because I was using my heating or cooling too much for the previous month or two. There must be a way for the HVAC companies to build a smart thermostat so that it knows how much money you are spending while you are running the air conditioning or heating, and to display it for you in real time so you know exactly how much you’re spending. I think this is doable and maybe this is something we will see in the next few years if we are lucky. Or even better, all of the HVAC systems in the future will be green and won’t use any power at all. This would make all of the local businesses a lot happier too.
