As we approach hot, summer weather — the heart of demand-response season — utility providers and homeowners are feeling the heat from increased energy costs. Honeywell Home approaches product design with sustainability in mind. Looking to increase your energy efficiency? Look no further...we have you covered.
Resideo's Honeywell Home brand has more ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostats than any other manufacturer, according to this complete list of all certified smart thermostats on energystar.gov.
Our 18 connected Honeywell Home thermostats all carry the ENERGY STAR certification, and they can help keep your family comfortable, save you money and help conserve our planet's resources.
In the past, utility providers would attach a wireless device to your air conditioner compressor that would turn off the unit during a peak demand, leaving you overheated and helpless. But now you can connect your smart thermostat directly to your utility account online. Then, the provider can send alerts through an app during peak demand that adjusts thermostats just one or two degrees to reduce stress on the system.
Our new Honeywell Home T Series Smart Thermostats are perfect for homeowners who can link them directly to rebate programs offered by participating utility companies. Once installed, the thermostat goes to work, adjusting temperatures based on who is in the house and what's going on outside on the city-wide power grid.
Resideo's Honeywell Home thermostats are “set and forget” – you don't have to worry about turning the air conditioning up every day before you leave for work. It's automatic convenience and automatic energy savings. Should you need to adjust the temperature, it's easily done from wherever you are through a simple app on your phone.
The new Honeywell Home T9 and T10 Pro smart thermostats take your comfort and energy savings to the next level by offering temperature control that's 'just right' in a particular room. The thermostats, along with separately purchased wireless smart sensors measure temperature and humidity in multiple rooms, allowing homeowners to prioritize certain rooms to the desired temperature for certain times of day.
We want to show you just how much you could save with a smart thermostat. Using our intuitive online calculator, you can get an annual energy savings estimate in minutes. A smart thermostat should be a no-brainer investment after you see the results from this calculator.
In 1998, we became one of the founding companies of the Thermostat Recycling Corporation, an organization dedicated to the collection and proper disposal of mercury-containing thermostats. To date, the organization has collected more than 2.5 million mercury-containing thermostats – that's 12 tons of mercury kept out of the waste stream.
We're always looking to make our smart-home products even smarter, while continuing to save you money on your energy bills. Resideo's recent acquisition of innovative energy efficiency technology from Whisker Labs will enable the company to create a thermodynamic model of a home to accurately predict home heating and air conditioning run time and energy use. It will result in the homeowner using less energy while maintaining the same comforts.
Whether it's our product design, or our environmental sustainability efforts, our efforts to help realize a more energy efficient world are relentless. To get started on a path to reducing your own environmental footprint, consider a Honeywell Home smart thermostat as a first step.
