What is a Smart Thermostat?

Smart thermostats help you save energy – as they automatically and remotely control heating and cooling within a home, versus a resident having to manually adjust their temperature. Smart thermostats can even learn residents’ temperature preferences and schedules and automatically adjust heating or cooling to those preferred levels. Several brands of smart thermostats are available for purchase at a variety of retail locations or online; all makes and models will be eligible under this rebate program.
