Here’s Why Second Homeowners are Choosing Ecobee Thermostats to Save Money

For second homeowners in Margate, Long Port, Sea Isle, and Ocean City and many who vacation frequently, smart thermostats are offering comfort, convenience, and cutting down energy cost. Yet, there are so many brands and models out there how do you choose the right one? Well, Lenegan Plumbing & Heating LLC is offering its customers one of the best remote thermostats on the market and here’s why you’re going to want Ecobee in your home.

Ecobee is a home automation company that makes thermostats for residential and commercial use. Their products include two smart thermostats the Ecobee3 Lite and Ecobee4 and two compatible products Room Sensors, and Ecobee Switch+.

Cuts down on energy costs.

According to Ecobee’s website, their products saved customers up to 23%* on heating or cooling costs in 2013. Here are just a few ways Ecobee’s smart thermostats can save you money: Homeowners can set up a schedule and change the temperature through a Mobile App, set up reminders and alerts, and connect to Wi-Fi for Weather Impact, which allows Ecobee to prevent your system from running unnecessarily. The newer model Ecobee4, uses the size, age and type of your home, and three features Follow Me, Vacation Schedule, and Smart Home/Away to make smarter heating and cooling decisions. Also did we mention, Ecobee smart thermostats are also all ENERGY STAR® certified.

Award-winning technology.

This feature will also save you money, too. Most thermostats can only read the temperature of your house in one place, which can make other rooms too hot or too cold. However, what makes Ecobee’s smart thermostats different from its competitors is its sensor technology. Both The Ecobee3 Lite and Ecobee4 use Room Sensors™. These sensors can be placed in any room and can read individual temperatures and detect occupancy.

User friendly.

Both the Ecobee3 Lite and Ecobee4 have built-in touchscreens. Users will have a registered login in which can be used on a computer or a companion app available for iOS, Android and Apple Watch. You can control the remote thermostats from your smart phone, tablet, and the web. Ecobee4 includes built-in Amazon Alexa Voice Service, too.

To check if your home’s heating and cooling equipment is compatible with Ecobee smart WiFi thermostats give Lenegan Plumbing & Heating LLC a call at (609) 399-1200.
