Savings from your ecobee
ecobee customers in the US saved up to 23% on their heating and cooling costs, based on an internal analysis conducted on October 2, 2013.
How are energy savings calculated?
ecobee calculates energy savings by correlating how long your heating and cooling equipment run to local weather conditions. Energy savings are calculated relative to a commonly used desired temperature of 72°F (22°C).
We calculate your estimated cost savings based on your equipment’s runtime savings, the average electricity rate in your area and the heating fuel rate for your state.
How does changing my desired temperature (set point) affect energy savings?
As the difference between indoor and outdoor temperature increases, the rate at which a home exchanges heat with its surroundings also increases. To maintain a constant indoor temperature, your heating or cooling system has to run longer to keep up when this exchange increases. You can save energy by minimizing the difference between your indoor temperature and the outdoor temperature. This means setting a higher desired temperature during the cooling months and a lower set point during the heating months.
What are some other factors that may impact the actual energy savings I see?
Your individual energy savings will vary based on geographic location, local weather conditions, type of heating and cooling equipment, sxize of home, and your home’s energy-tightness.
Our ecobee smart thermostats are also all ENERGY STAR® certified.

Before founding ecobee in 2007, Stuart Lombard was on a mission to reduce his family’s carbon footprint and save money. He found a lot of ways to conserve energy but most were complex and costly. However, he discovered that heating and cooling made up the majority of his home energy use. So, he tried a programmable thermostat. It turned out to be really complicated, even for someone with an engineering degree. And, unreliable. When Stuart and his family came home one winter day to find their house freezing, they'd had enough. He knew there had to be a better way and decided to build his own thermostat. A truly smart thermostat, that was easy to install, smart enough to deliver comfort, conserving energy and pay for itself in energy savings. That day, ecobee was born.
