The Sustainability page is intended to estimate the likely carbon footprint reduction and potential annual savings generated by altering the temperature settings of your programmable thermostat. Calculations are based on approximate customer product usage supplied through our App’s data feed compared against average rates and consider away and sleep periods of no less than 8 hours each. Actual savings amount and carbon footprint reduction amount may vary and are highly dependent on the actual temperature settings selected by the occupants of the home. For additional information on potential energy savings with a programmable thermostat refer to https://www.energy.gov/energysaver/thermostats.
Recommended temperature settings may not be appropriate for all pets and plants; final temperature selections should be based on the individual needs of your household.
This tool uses simplified assumptions based on information from the following sources: NY Technical Resource Manual Version 6, Energy Star, US AGA, and US EPA.
