If you’re looking to save money on your energy bill, a smart thermostat can help.
If you’re in the market for one, Amazon has a deal on the Honeywell Home T5 Plus Wi-Fi smart thermostat, which is a great option for older homes and has hundreds of five-star customer reviews. Normally $149.99, it’s available now for just $81.95, or 45 percent off, with free shipping.
As we noted in our smart thermostat roundup, almost all such devices require a C wire, which many older homes lack. If you’re in this camp, you won’t have this problem with the T5 Plus, which comes with an optional C wire power adapter.
Once you get it set up, you’ll be able to control your home’s temperature wherever you are from the Honeywell Home app on your iOS or Android smartphone. That way, you won’t have to get up in the middle of the night to adjust the temperature, or waste energy and money if you forget to turn down the AC before vacation.
The T5 Plus also plays nice with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant, so you can control the temperature with the sound of your voice. You can program it based on your schedule, so it’s always the perfect temperature and you don’t waste energy when you’re out. This smart thermostat will also send you an alert if your home’s temperature gets too high or low.
Perhaps best of all, it’s compatible with many utility rebate programs, which reward you for saving energy. It also offers a neat geofencing feature, which can use your smartphone’s location to automatically turn your heating and cooling on and off when you leave and return home.
“Running this thermostat with [geofencing] on for about a year and comparing my usage from last year, it has definitely saved me money,” one reviewer wrote.
Don’t miss this chance to score the Honeywell Home T5 Plus Wi-Fi smart thermostat for just $81.95, or almost $70 off.
