ENERGY STAR® Certified Smart Thermostats

Almost half of the annual energy bill for the average American household goes to heating and cooling—that's more than $900 a year. You can take control of your energy costs with an ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostat.

With a smart thermostat you’ll be able to enjoy:

  • Convenience: Many smart thermostats learn your temperature preferences and establish a schedule that automatically adjusts to energy-saving temperatures when you are asleep or away.
  • Control: Wi-Fi enabled thermostats allow you to control your home’s heating and cooling remotely through your smartphone. Anytime, anywhere.
  • Insight: Smart thermostats provide equipment use and temperature data you can track and manage.
