Smart Thermostats

Change in Rebate Amount:

Due to high program participation, beginning July 1, 2021, the rebate amount for ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostats will be reduced from $100 to $75. To qualify for the $100 rebate, your thermostat must be purchased on or before June 30, 2021, and must be submitted or postmarked by July 31, 2021.

Save Money and Improve Comfort:

Heating and cooling account for up to 50% of the energy you use at home.*

When you switch to an ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostat, you can reduce your home’s annual energy use by:

  • Controlling your home’s heating and cooling system from your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
  • Choosing to “set it and forget it” for greater ease of use and convenience, while saving energy.
  • Allowing your thermostat to learn your preferences and automatically adjust temperature settings for improved comfort and performance.

Plus, you can get an up to $75 or $100 rebate for making the switch!** See the below tabs for additional information on the rebates available.
