They are simple and sleek in design but not short on brains! These tiny puck sized t-stats have eyes and a mind of their own...well figuratively speaking. However, they are not for everyone!


A "smart" T-stat learns your family's patterns and adjusts the t-stat accordingly. The furnace Gurus of Polar Express run 1000's of service and maintenance calls every year and according to our non-scientific survey, very few of our clients with programmable t-stats actually run the system on a program. The reasons for this differ, but the main reason we hear for not programming the thermostat is that it's too complicated to operate and/or the client's schedule vary too much from day to day.


The "smart" T-stat solves the problem of the ever-changing schedule. Working from home today? No problem...the "smart" t-stat knows your home and recognizes not to set the temperature back. Going on vacation? No problem...the "smart" t-stat knows you haven't been around for a while and adjusts accordingly. Most of the "smart" stats even know what the weather forecast is for the upcoming days, and uses that information to determine set points. Plus, you can allow access from any smart phone or tablet so you can adjust the temp from anywhere, anytime, and monitor your home while you're gone!


The utility companies that serve Waukesha County say a "smart" T-stat can save up to $120 per year! That's huge savings and amounts to a 30% Return on investment. In a few short years, the "smart" thermostat has paid for itself including installation, and starts putting $100 bills into your pocket after that.


THIS IS IMPORTANT... Right now, there is a $75 rebate being offered by FOE for "smart" T-stats installed by a professional. All you have to do is call Polar Express Heating and Air at 262-367-3266 and schedule an appointment with a Guru to have your new "smart" t-stat installed. (We'll even take care of all the paperwork for you!)


Let's face it...we're all going to be buying gas to heat our homes as long as we live in Wisconsin. That being true, any investment advisor would agree that a $75 cash back rebate, plus a 30% ROI on a minimal investment in your home's comfort and efficiency is a real no brainer! Plus, they are pretty cool if you are a tech minded person.
