What to expect on the day of your Installation

In-home consulting 

Now that you have booked your appointment, here’s what to expect on the day of your installation

The Installation

A trained GreenON Installations program representative will arrive at your home as scheduled, and will present photo ID. The process of installing the new smart thermostat and performing an in-home review will take approximately two hours.

The program representative will remove your old thermostat and dispose of it safely. Your representative will install your new smart thermostat; show you how to use it, and complete the warranty registration process with you, which will require you to agree to the smart thermostat manufacturer's terms and use and privacy policy. Please note that this will require access to your Wi-Fi.

The home energy report

The program representative will complete the in-home energy review by filling out a checklist and asking you questions about your home, such as its age. The review will require them to access various places around your home such as your windows and basement. Once your program representative has completed the in-home energy review, they will provide you with additional materials on the program.

The information gathered from the in-home energy review will be used to create a customized home energy profile that will be sent to you a few weeks following your appointment. This report will help you understand your energy usage and costs, suggesting ways to save energy and money by participating in other energy efficiency programs.

Smart thermostats do the leg work of keeping your home comfortable as efficiently as possible.

Using Wi-Fi technology, smart thermostats allow you to easily control the temperature of your home from anywhere – as long as you have a mobile device with you. Use a free app to heat or cool your home remotely, so you can return to a comfortable home. Or, simply change the temperature without having to get up from your couch.

Smart thermostats can also manage your energy use based on your schedule and preferences. Other features include automatic energy saving adjustments and maintenance alerts, such as when to change your furnace filter and reports to let you know just how much you’re saving.
