Every autumn and winter, I avoid turning on the HVAC units and space heaters in my apartment until absolutely necessary. The reason I wait is because:
- Those units are not energy efficient, which causes environmental waste and a higher electricity bill.
- The air becomes dry, which causes dry mouth, dry nostrils, and dry eyes.
- My spouse and I have different thresholds for bedroom temperature.
To address these concerns, I decided to buy a heated blanket and make it "smart."
