Helpful Tips

Some smart thermostats are not compatible with certain heating and cooling systems. For instance, very high efficiency heating and cooling equipment may work best with thermostats from the same manufacturer. Make sure your heating and cooling system is compatible before purchasing a new thermostat. 

Wi-Fi enabled smart thermostats work best when located near your router.

Smart thermostats can be purchased through a variety of online retailers, including Smart Neighbor , and most can be easily installed by yourself. Many retailers offer “how-to” videos to help you install your thermostat.
