Too old for new technology

My son was always teasing me about coming into the twenty-first century.

I didn’t have a smartphone, and I wasn’t really interested in getting one.

He told me that I wouldn’t survive without the proper technology and he bought me a smartphone. I still haven’t figured out how to use the smartphone. I called him the other day and told him that there was something wrong with my thermostat. My HVAC system was not responding to it. He came over and told me I needed a new thermostat and he offered to get me a new one. I thought he was just going to buy me a thermostat just like the one I have, but I was thinking wrong. He brought in a new Smart Thermostat and he installed it for me. He put an app on my phone and told me that it wouldn’t take long for me to figure out how to use the smartphone to run my Smart Thermostat. I soon figured out how to change the temperature on the thermostat, but it was now coming winter. I couldn’t figure out how to change the thermostat so that I was setting the temperature on the furnace instead of on the air conditioning. No matter what I did, all I was doing was adjusting the air conditioning. I couldn’t even get the furnace to turn on. Maybe I just need to take my time, but I have decided it is time to call my son and find out what I am supposed to do with this Smart Thermostat.
