Save on your home’s heating and cooling costs by replacing your manual or programmable thermostat with a new smart thermostat.
Purchase a qualifying ENERGY STAR® smart thermostat to receive a $50 rebate from PG&E.
Do-it-yourself installation timing will vary by customer but on average the process takes as little as 45 minutes. Manufacturers also recommend reaching out to a qualified contractor for help with installation. In either case, PG&E recommends carefully following all safety instructions as recommended by the manufacturer.
PLEASE NOTE: Manually operated thermostats contain mercury and need to be disposed of carefully and properly. Find a safe and free collection site near you at the Thermostat Recycling Corporation.
A smart thermostat is a Wi-Fi enabled device that automatically adjusts your home’s heating and cooling. You can “set it and forget it” for greater ease of use and convenience, while saving energy. Some models allow for remote monitoring and control from your mobile phone, tablet or laptop, or wherever you happen to be.
According to ENERGY STAR, heating and cooling your home can cost up to $900 a year. Save energy and money by maintaining recommended temperatures with a smart thermostat.
