Smart Thermostats

Customize your home’s energy use and maximize your savings.

A smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi enabled device that “learns” your habits to help you manage home heating and cooling costs. It adjusts your HVAC equipment based on your home’s unique energy profile and the weather outside. You can save energy and money without sacrificing comfort.

The savings add up

A smart thermostat saves up to $120 annually and typically pays for itself in two years. And with a $75 Smart Thermostat Incentive available from Focus on Energy, you’ll save even more. 

 

With you wherever you go

Control your smart thermostat from your phone or computer. Lower your home temperature from work a couple degrees to save money. If you’re out on the town and the night turns chilly, warm the house before heading home.

Stay ahead of system repairs

Some smart thermostats notify you when the system isn’t operating at top condition. You’ll know when to change a dirty filter or schedule a tune-up before you need a costly repair.

Combine with HVAC upgrades

Considering new heating and cooling equipment? Ask your Trade Ally to install a smart thermostat at the same time and receive an incentive check from Focus on Energy, in addition to other Focus on Energy incentives you may receive for heating and cooling equipment.
