Drive thermostat business with Honeywell’s residential energy-savings calculator
By Anthony Capkun
August 1, 2013 – To help educate homeowners, Honeywell introduced an energy-savings calculator on its website wifithermostat.com, which provides them with a way to determine the energy and money savings they may experience by switching to a Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart or another of the company’s full line of programmable thermostats. (The site is also set up for Canadian residents.) It’s simple, says Honeywell: just enter your postal code and some basic information about how you heat/cool your home, and your typical schedule during the winter and summer, and the calculator estimates the potential savings in both dollars and the carbon offset amount shown by an equivalent number of trees. The energy-savings calculator is powered by GreenOhm—a data and technology company providing online and mobile solutions to communicate rebates and on-going cost savings estimates for energy-saving products.
