How IM Home Saves Energy

IM Home makes a Wi-Fi smart thermostat smarter. If you need an Ecobee or Honeywell TCC smart thermostat or already have one, you can take advantage of the energy savings and rebates you get with IM Home.

  • IM Home connects to your Wi-Fi smart thermostat to learn what temperatures keep you comfortable. It works in the background to understand how your home uses energy based on your local weather, how long your air conditioner usually runs and how quickly or slowly the temperature changes in your home.
  • IM Home checks for ways to save energy every day. When it sees a way to save more, it tweaks your regular schedule by a few degrees. You probably won’t even notice.
  • If the forecast for the next day calls for a hot and/or humid day, IM Home notifies you an “event” will happen the next day.
  • The morning of the event, IM Home “pre-cools” your home by a few degrees and monitors temperature of your home during the event. If the temperature in your home goes up too much, your air conditioner will run.

 For example, your temperature is normally set at 74°. Your home is pre-cooled in the morning by a few degrees. During the event the temperature of your home rises to above    your set comfort zone – your air conditioner runs. If you home’s temperature doesn’t go above your set comfort zone, the air conditioner stays off and you save even more.

  • You can opt out of the event by setting your thermostat to the desired temperature. However, you will not get the bill credit or energy savings.
  • An event will not last longer than 6 hours and will only occur Monday – Friday. There are a maxium of 15 events between May and September.
