Potomac Edison is offering customers in Maryland a smart thermostat and heating and cooling monitoring service to improve home efficiency and safeguard against potential performance issues.

For a low monthly fee of $14.99, added conveniently to the customer's monthly electric bill, the Connected Home Plan includes a professionally installed ecobee smart thermostat and remote sensor. The ecobee system is designed to measure temperature and occupancy throughout the home, allowing the thermostat to deliver the right temperature in the rooms that matter most.

The plan also includes HVAC Monitoring Service, which provides custom monthly reports on the efficiency of the home and text or email alerts if there may be opportunities to correct performance issues or avoid serious breakdowns.

"The Connected Home Plan offers customers greater control over the comfort and energy efficiency of their home – anytime, from anywhere – using their smartphone, tablet or computer," said Brett Reynolds, vice president, FE Products. "Through our HVAC Monitoring Service, unique energy efficiency monitoring software recognizes patterns of underperformance and provides the data and tools customers need to save energy, improve the performance of their equipment, and combat larger repair costs."
