Transforming everyday life and making a sustainable difference since 2007.
So far ecobee thermostats have delivered over 17.6 TWh of energy savings.¹ That’s like:
- Taking all the homes in Las Vegas off the grid for one year
- Keeping 13.7 million tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere
- Charging 1.5 trillion smartphones
- Removing 2.7 million cars from the road for a year
2007: ecobee releases the world’s first smart thermostat, helping millions of people live more comfortably and sustainably.
2014: ecobee3 launches with remote temperature sensor that automatically adjusts for comfort and energy savings using occupancy.
2015: An internal study shows that ecobee smart thermostats pay for themselves, offering users up to 26%* savings on heating and cooling.
2016: ecobee thermostats are some of the first to be ENERGY STAR® certified, meaning they are guaranteed to provide energy savings.
2017: One-of-a-kind Donate Your Data program lets ecobee users share anonymized thermostat data with scientists building the clean energy grid and homes of tomorrow.
2019: Subsidized ecobee smart thermostats are helping more than 34,000 families lower their energy bills and fight energy poverty.
2020: eco+, a major software update, works with all ecobee thermostats released since 2014, allowing millions of users to participate in the green energy revolution.
Onward: Our goal is to remove the complexity of running a modern home with smart devices that automatically save energy and positively impact the environment.
Comfort doesn’t need to be sacrificed to live sustainably.
— Stuart Lombard, ecobee founder and CEO
Our approach:Changing the world, one home at a time.
Each of us has a role to play in the fight against climate change. With the right technology in the right hands we can all make a difference.
- Sustainably built
We reduce waste with long-lasting products.
- The average lifespan of an ecobee thermostat is 4x longer than a smartphone.²
- Our SmartThermostat is also a home monitoring hub and has Alexa Built-in, helping you do more and buy less.
We keep thousands of our thermostats out of landfills and reduce e-waste by repairing and reusing them.
Energy conservation:Simple changes add up to tons of impact.
The average household in the United States produces 7.5 tons of CO2 per year and over half of the energy used in most homes is for heating and cooling.³
Our ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostats and sensors have been invited into millions of homes because they guarantee lower energy costs by up to 26%* percent. That translates into an average annual saving of $234 per home, per year⁴ and billions of kWh of energy savings for ecobee users.

Sustainably built:Engineered to last in your home, not a landfill.
We want our devices to become fixtures in your home. That’s why we future proof them with enough processing power to be useful for years to come. For example, eco+, our next-generation thermostat software, works with all ecobee thermostats released since 2014.

All good things must come to an end. To cut down on consumption and e-waste, we design for easy disassembly and repair and resell thousands of thermostats per year.
Better tomorrow:Building a healthier planet and society
Sustainability is more than energy conservation. We lighten our environmental impact and social impact by using more recycled plastics and materials that are ethically sourced in our products and wrapping them in fully recyclable packaging.
One in three families struggle to pay their utility bills. To help families fighting energy poverty, we have partnered with community housing organizations, cities, NGOs, and utility providers to donate hundreds and subsidize thousands of thermostats.
Welcome to the ecobee Home.
A home that brings harmony to homelife.
As soon as you step out, the ecobee Home can adjust the temperature for energy savings, turn on cameras, secure exits with door and window sensors, and set the lights to make it look like someone’s home.
That helps the community.
To help keep the power flowing during a summer heatwave or winter cold spell, with eco+ ecobee thermostats can automatically adjust the temperature slightly when demand peaks. You’ll be rewarded for pitching in with a rebate from your utility provider.
And is ready for what lies ahead.
Experts say the world must be carbon-neutral by 2050 and that energy efficiency will play a key role. Our eco+ thermostat software intelligently pre-heats or cools the home when power is less expensive and cleaner. This is one way we are using technology to help bring about a brighter future.

¹ Based on internal measurements of thermostat runtime data.
² Per Statista.com the average lifespan of a smartphone in the United States is 3.17 years (https://bit.ly/2QHnhek). Based on internal measurements the average lifespan of an ecobee thermostat is 12 years.
³ Use of energy explained, U.S. Energy Information Administration (https://bit.ly/3wZimpz).
⁴ Per Energy Star (https://bit.ly/3sEoFvo), the average household spends $900 or more on annual heating and cooling costs. By lowering heating and cooling costs by up to 26%*, ecobee thermostats can save owners as much as US$234/CAN$292 annually on their energy bills. With an MSRP of US$169.99/CAN$219.99, the ecobee3 lite can pay for itself in less than a year.
