New Tool Helps Consumers Make Better Decisions as They Choose Programmable Thermostats for Their Homes

MINNEAPOLIS, July 31, 2013 – Summer heat waves lead to high electricity bills as homeowners make a beeline for their thermostats to crank up the air conditioning. But do they know they have options when it comes to saving money on energy to cool and heat their homes?

To help educate homeowners, Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today introduced an energy savings calculator on its website wifithermostat.com. The energy savings calculator gives homeowners an easy way to determine the energy and money savings they could experience by switching to a Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart or another of Honeywell’s full line of programmable thermostats. It’s simple; just enter your zip code and some basic information about how you heat and cool your home and your typical schedule during the winter and summer, and the calculator estimates the potential savings in both dollars and the carbon offset amount shown by an equivalent number of trees.

Honeywell’s website also features a rebate finder, which allows homeowners to search for rebates on Honeywell Wi-Fi Programmable thermostats based on zip codes. Local electric and gas utility companies, municipalities, counties and states offer the rebates, an acknowledgement that Honeywell thermostats give homeowners energy savings.

“Programmable thermostats save homeowners money on their utility costs,” said Beth Wozniak, president of Honeywell Environmental and Combustion Controls. “But few homeowners realize this. Honeywell wants to help them make the best decisions for their homes and lifestyles. We have a full range of programmable thermostats for homeowners who are building a new home or want a do-it-yourself upgrade.  And for those that need a little help, Honeywell has a huge network of professional contractors that can help install a new thermostat.”

Both the energy savings calculator and rebate finder are powered by GreenOhm, which has an exclusive partnership with Honeywell for thermostat-specific tools. GreenOhm is a data and technology company that provides online and mobile solutions to communicate rebates and on-going cost savings estimates for energy saving products.  For more information and to find the energy savings calculator and rebate finder visit www.wifithermostat.com.

”GreenOhm is thrilled to expand our partnership with Honeywell, the leader in thermostat products, providing their customers with the most advanced  solutions and tools in the market today to identify local rebate opportunities and calculate precise ongoing cost savings,” said Lee Guthman, co-founder and president of GreenOhm.


Innovative Recycling Efforts Are Reducing Mercury In Landfills

MINNEAPOLIS, (November 29, 2012) – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) is working with distributors and contractors to collect thermostats across the United States to support the Thermostat Recycling Corporation’s (TRC) efforts to recover and properly dispose of mercury thermostats.   According to its recently released 2011/2012 Progress Report, TRC recovered nearly one ton of mercury, and since 2002 has prevented nearly seven tons of mercury from entering the waste stream.
“This is especially remarkable considering that the majority of states do not have mercury thermostat disposal bans in place,” said Mark Tibbetts, TRC’s executive director. “We rely on partners like Honeywell to encourage HVAC contractors to voluntarily participate in the program.  It is important that thermostats are properly disposed of in order to keep the mercury out of our landfills.”
HVAC Distributors and Contractors who are interested in participating in the recycling program should visit TRC’s website (www.thermostat-recycle.org) for eligibility to become a collection site.
Honeywell is committed to protecting the environment and safe disposal and recycling of mercury-containing thermostats.  The company’s track record includes not only their partnership with TRC but additional recognition from the U.S. EPA for voluntarily stopping the manufacture and sale of mercury-containing thermostats more than six years ago.
“Honeywell is proud of its record and work with the Thermostat Recycling Corporation to collect and recycle mercury containing thermostats,” said Dan O’Donnell, director of legislative affairs for Environmental Combustion Controls at Honeywell.  “While more remains to be done, it is our objective to work with our colleagues in the industry, government, and private sector to constantly improve programs and results.”


MINNEAPOLIS, April 9, 2013 – Honeywell (NYSE:HON) today announced the Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat, a groundbreaking connected thermostat that allows design-focused homeowners to customize it to match or accent their home décor. In addition, the Honeywell thermostat offers Wi-Fi connectivity that allows consumers to regulate their energy usage and home comfort through their smart phone.
