Many schools, religious congregations, municipal and government buildings, small and large commercial facilities, and restaurants across North America are taking advantage of significant cost and energy savings with the ecobee EMS (Energy Management System). ecobee is the most cost-effective centralized solution to monitor and control your building’s heating and cooling system–all at a fraction of the price of a traditional Building Automation System. The success stories are countless (not to mention impressive)—so we thought we’d share a few of them with you!
“14 ecobee EMS thermostats were installed in our 80,000 sq/ft church in June 2011, and we saw a reduction of nearly 50% in our energy costs within the first two months. We saved so much so quickly, our utilities company even contacted us to find out how! They’ve now taken us off their demand rating system so we are able to reap the benefits of preferred energy rates. We’re installing 11 more EMS thermostats this spring.”
–Mike Strope, First Assembly of God
“We decided to try out the ecobee EMS product for our 135,000 sq/ft furniture retail location in St. Louis, Missouri in January 2011. Right away, we were able to track an energy savings of 25-30% month over month, which equated to huge cost savings. We were so impressed by
the product, and the savings we received, that we made the decision to outfit our other 4 furniture retail locations in the St. Louis area with a total of over 135 ecobee EMS thermostats. Along with the tremendous cost savings we’re enjoying, I can control the heating and cooling for each of my locations all from my ecobee Web Portal which saves me tons of time. We are very happy with our decision to go with ecobee.”
–Patrick Winkler, Weekends Only Furniture
“We have 10 ecobee EMS thermostats installed in 4 satellite fire stations and a Public Works Building in the city of Minnetonka—and we are absolutely thrilled with the product. Because our satellite stations are unoccupied the majority of the time, I have the units set so that if someone comes in to use the space, all they have to do is touch the ‘Occupied’ icon on the thermostat, and the temperature will automatically adjust for a period of 2 hours. Never again will I have to come in to one of our facilities and realize the heat or air conditioning had been running on high for days on end, driving up our energy bill. Additionally, the Alerts feature has saved us on more than one occasion. Less than a month after the ecobee EMS thermostats were installed, we received an email alert to let us know that one of our units was malfunctioning. We were able to respond immediately, and avoided a potentially costly situation. Bravo ecobee on creating an outstanding product that delivers on its promises.”
–Larry Schnack, City of Minnetonka
