PenLight is now offering incentives for the purchase and installation of Smart Thermostats for homes with electric forced-air furnaces, air source heat pumps, and ground source heat pumps as their primary system. These incentives are available for existing and new construction single-family, manufactured, and multifamily homes. Smart Thermostats may be installed by homeowners or HVAC contractors.

Your thermostat controls half your energy bill – more than appliances, more than electronics. So shouldn’t it help you save energy? Independent studies have proven that Smart Thermostats saved an average of 10–12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills.That means that in two years, it can pay for itself.
