New Evaluation Report Proves ecobee Smart Thermostats Save - Even During a Global Pandemic

ecobee


As we continue to spend more time at home, residential energy demand has increased dramatically. A recent study shows American household energy sales increased by 8% in 2020, and in some states this increase was as high as 21%. This puts pressure on the electric grid and has forced governments to implement temporary relief programs that help keep power bills down. But consumers need long-term solutions to help save energy, as working from home arrangements will extend well beyond 2021.

Fortunately, new research demonstrates that smart thermostats are a vital tool, providing consistent savings—pandemic or not. Comparing data gathered between June and August 2020 with summer 2019 data, a new measurement and verification report by Demand Side Analytics shows that ecobee smart thermostats are keeping up with changes in consumption patterns and continuing to deliver savings.

Despite changes to routines, the study found that eco+, a free built-in optimization platform on ecobee smart thermostats, still delivered persistent incremental savings across North America in summer 2019 and summer 2020. Demand response program impacts were also relatively consistent at 1 kW per device across both summers.
