Control your home's major energy users with a smartphone app
Homeowners are realizing they can save energy costs when they have more control over their major appliances.
At the 2015 AHR Expo, Lindsey Ford, senior public relations specialist for Rheem, reviewed the company's EcoNet System.
EcoNet is a smart-home technology that connects Rheem and Ruud heating, cooling and water heating products into an integrated, WiFi-enabled comfort network that homeowners can control with just a touch. This innovative system enables all-in-one management of the appliances that make up 65% of their home’s energy consumption.
Ford noted the contractor-friendly auto setup features can configure the entire system from one location. The easy-to-view display enables fast, accurate troubleshooting by providing comprehensive diagnostics on a single screen.
