EcoSaver technology saves you money
With Florida cities dominating the list of the places in the United States with the highest annual average temperature (according to NOAA’s National Climactic Data Center), controlling energy costs is critically important to Sunshine State residents. In fact, a recent independent survey from Houzz and Home indicates that two of the leading reasons people decided to initiate home improvement projects were to “incorporate new technologies into the home” and “increase energy efficiency.”A benefit to Floridians is Xfinity Home’s EcoSaver™, a new cloud-based service that can help customers potentially reduce their energy use year-round and save on their utility bills. Paired with the Xfinity Home thermostat, EcoSaver actually “learns” each home’s unique cooling and heating patterns and makes automatic and incremental adjustments to the thermostat based on real-time weather data, the thermal characteristics of the house, and the homeowners’ temperature preferences. Over time, the system adapts to homeowners’ input and helps reduce energy consumption, all while keeping the temperature comfortable. "Customers want innovative, affordable technologies that can help them monitor and manage their homes whether they’re at home or away,” said Tom Zemaitis. Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Comcast’s Florida Region. “With Xfinity Home Control, Comcast offers a total home solution that simplifies your life.”
