What is a Smart Thermostat?

By Green Ontario Fund


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 learn your schedule and preferences and automatically adapt to your lifestyle, to provide comfort when you’re at home and savings when you’re not. 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.

The GreenON Installations program offers three different smart thermostat models. Exact makes and models are subject to change.

A GreenON Installations program representative will ask you to select your preferred smart thermostat model when you are contacted to schedule an appointment. Learn more about how the program works
