The cold days are fast approaching, and while we’ll ultimately be thankful when the heat kicks in, the last thing we look forward to is the massive energy bill. Keeping tabs on the thermostat has become a necessity nowadays with energy at a premium, but sometimes that temperature managing device can be too confusing to fiddle with. Thankfully, Ecobee has ironed out all of the kinks with their very own version of the integrated intelligent programmable smart thermostat. Their WiFi enabled touchscreen (it resembles an iPod) makes being green easy with a quick save button that automatically sets your system to conserve. If you’ve forgotten to lower your heat after you’ve left your home, you can also login online and tinker with the settings remotely, which might come in handy if need to freeze out an unwelcome houseguest.
