someone asked why the thermostats have batteries instead of being connected to the regular power. I replied that it was so you could still adjust the air conditioning even during a power outage.
My utility bills plummeted when I gave up the 75-gallon aquarium. Heating it used more electricity than everything else in the house put together.
technically the A/C thermostat did have battery backup
