Smart thermostats

Beginning in early July 2019, ENERGY STAR Certified smart thermostats will receive a deemed savings equivalent to $75 per install. Up to 3 qualifying thermostats can receive this incentive in each home. **Note that only homes that qualify for HERO+HERS incentives ($/kWh) can take advantage of the deemed savings.**


  • Home must qualify for HERO+HERS incentive

  • Thermostat must be listed on the ENERGY STAR product finder

  • Raters must collect the following information for each device during final inspections

    • Manufacturer

    • Model

    • Serial number

The updates related to processing smart thermostats are tied to the energy modeling changes described in another recent news post. The program will make a final announcement when submitted homes will begin receiving the deemed savings.
