Energy Star Certified Thermostats
Heating and cooling consume more energy than any other appliance in the home, making smart thermostats the best candidate to help save energy within the household. These devices offer the ability to monitor and adjust the homeowner’s temperature even when they are away. More importantly, they can be used to automatically turn down your heating and cooling when it’s not needed. To meet ENERGY STAR’s requirements for smart thermostat energy savings, manufacturers must show how their model reduces the HVAC system’s use in different climates across the country. Additionally, ENERGY STAR smart thermostats are required to be able to enter a low-power standby mode when inactive, which saves even more energy.
Each thermostat uses slightly different features to help homeowners save energy, so do research, and choose the ENERGY STAR smart thermostat that’s right for homeowners and your business.
