10 Jul Consumers Energy Incentives Now Available for Those who Choose Wi-Fi Enabled Thermostats
More and more homeowners around the U.S., including those in SE Michigan, are choosing Wi-Fi to operate their homes, not only in terms of accessing the Internet, but networks which operate home heating and cooling as well. Today, there are even Wi-Fi enabled thermostats to help make you life even easier. If you are a Michigan homeowner living in Dexter, Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, or nearby cities, you may be eligible for incentives on the installation of a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat beginning July 1 of this year.
Why would southeast Michigan homeowners want a thermostat that is Wi-Fi enabled?
Today, more than half (in fact, more than 60%) of homes in the U.S. are equipped with a Wi-Fi connection, many times for other purposes than running HVAC equipment. However, this connectivity, when combined with incentives from manufacturers, gives homeowners plenty of reason to go beyond the old-fashioned standard thermostat or even programmable thermostats, giving you even more control of your HVAC system.
What is required to be eligible for a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat?
Whether your HVAC system operates using electric, gas, or a combination of the two, if you currently operate the cooling and heating of your home using a non-programmable thermostat,. you qualify for a $50 rebate incentive savings on the installation of one Wi-Fi enabled thermostat in your home. The details on the product you choose should clearly state that that device is capable of connecting to the Internet, or equipped with Wi-Fi.
The Wi-Fi home market has grown exponentially in recent years; in fact, around the world more than 400 million homes had installed Wi-Fi networks by the closing of 2011, equaling about 25% of all households. If you believe you qualify for a Wi-Fi enabled thermostat in your Michigan home, contact Haley Mechanical now to ensure you do not miss out on the incentive opportunity!
