Why a smart thermostat discount?

Unlike conventional thermostats, smart thermostats make it simple to save energy on heating and cooling costs. A Nest Thermostat E also cuts heating bills by 10% to 12% and cooling bills by 15%. This is equivalent to an average savings of $131 to $145 a year! (source) By being energy efficient, you can save money and help clean Utah’s wintertime air by reducing NOx emissions that come from natural gas combustion at home. Cutting electricity use also helps the Salt Lake County community achieve its goal to cut emissions by 80% and transition to 100% renewable energy.
