Smart home technology has traditionally filled a niche market, but every year more people are installing home automation components. According to a recent Ipsos poll, 55% of Canadians are interested in installing smart thermostats – and this statistic doesn’t surprise us. We’ve seen interest steadily growing and we install more and more programmable thermostats every year. A popular choice for many homeowners is the Canadian brand, ecobee.
The Toronto-based company offers two different residential models, both sleek and Wi-Fi enabled, with the ability to provide unparalleled comfort and monitoring.
ecobee can help you save money on your energy bills by optimizing your HVAC system. ecobee learns your lifestyle and activities, turning off the system when no one is home and ensuring the home is comfortable upon your return.
ecobee3 comes with remote sensors. Most programmable thermostats can only monitor the temperature in the room they are installed in. With ecobee3, multiple sensors in different parts of the house ensure there is even heating and cooling throughout your home.
The web portal gives you access to a multitude of settings and data. Through the Internet-based app, it’s easy to program or monitor your HVAC system from a computer or smartphone.
- You can track how much energy was used and conserved each month.
- The portal uses thousands of data points (type of HVAC system, local weather and energy performance of your home) to make intelligent heating and cooling decisions.
- Alerts you when there is a problem with your HVAC system and can send you reminders for annual maintenance and repairs.
Most residential HVAC systems are compatible with ecobee. A licensed installer should have no difficulty connecting the new system to your current heating and cooling system.
