Smart Thermostats

Why switch to a smart thermostat?

The answer is simple. Smart thermostats save money, energy, and time by automatically adjusting to your schedule during any season.

Heating and cooling can account for about half of the energy usage in an average Nova Scotian home –  making it your largest energy expense. Smart thermostats are designed to lower the energy consumption of your home, which can save you an average of 12% on your annual energy bill.


  • Minimize your home’s energy usage
  • Adjust the temperature remotely from your smartphone, tablet, or laptop via wifi
  • Tracks your energy use history and provides helpful insights to help you save even more
  • Most central heating systems can benefit from smart thermostat features
  • Easy to install on your own or hire a contractor
