I’ve picked a smart thermostat, what’s next?

The rest is just as easy. After you have selected a thermostat, the next steps are to complete a quick eligibility checklist and create an account. After your account is set up, checkout and schedule your free, professional installation. We’ll take care of the rest.

What can I do to earn more?

Add a smart water heater device to your cart when you select your thermostat. We’ll take care of attaching it to your water heater on the day of the appointment, and you’ll get a one-time $50 incentive while this cutting-edge technology runs in the background.

What happens after installation?

Enjoy the features and functionality of your new devices! We will make slight adjustments to your smart thermostat during times of peak demand, with at least one adjustment per month and no more than 48 per year. These adjustments typically occur in the morning during winter and in the afternoon during summer months, and they last for no more than four hours. If you stay engaged in the events (without opting out of more than five), you’ll earn $50 per thermostat per year, up to $100.

Bonus! You will also receive a $50 prepaid Mastercard© for connecting your water heater.
