Congratulations to the winner of CUB’s Earth Day giveaway: Bernadet of Naperville! She will be receiving a Nest smart thermostat, allowing her to control her home’s temperature from anywhere with her smartphone or tablet, and save on her electric bill.
Smart thermostats are a great way to make your home more energy efficient and cut down on your energy costs by nearly 20 percent. ComEd and Ameren both offer rebates up to $100 for installing one in your home. Sensors in smart thermostats monitor your home’s temperature and adjust based on its “learned” heating/cooling needs and patterns.
