The Smart Choice Made Simple: ENERGY STAR® Smart Thermostats

Smart thermostats that earn the ENERGY STAR label are independently certified to deliver reliable performance and energy savings.


ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostats provide convenience, insight, and control. Features include the ability to:

  • Learn your temperature preferences and establish a schedule that adjusts to energy-saving temperatures when you’re asleep or away.
  • Provide home energy use data that you can track and manage.
  • Give you control of home heating and cooling remotely through your smartphone.


ENERGY STAR smart thermostats are third-party certified to do the following:

  • Track and report equipment use and temperature data to the homeowner.
  • Quickly enter a low-power standby mode when inactive.
  • Save energy based on field data collected from over one thousand homes over an entire year.


ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostats enhance comfort and energy savings.

If everyone used an ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostat, savings would grow to:

  • 11 petajoules of energy (equivalent to energy used in about 700,000 electrical vehicles per year)
  • 248 million dollars per year
  • Offsetting 774 kilotonnes of greenhouse gas emissions (equivalent to 1.5 of the greenhouse gas emissions by Nunavut in 2015)

Save Even More with Utility Rebates:

  • Utilities or efficiency programs in your area may offer rebates on ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostats.
  • In addition, in some areas, homeowners with smart thermostats can participate in utility programs that support reliable power for everyone, and earn financial rewards for it.
