WORLD’S SMARTEST THERMOSTAT BY HONEYWELL GETS EVEN BETTER


LAS VEGAS, Jan. 23, 2013 ‘This week at the International Builders’ Show, Honeywell


(NYSE: HON) introduced two connected programmable thermostats to make homes more


comfortable and stylish, while helping homeowners lower their energy bills. The new smart


thermostats, up to 60 percent smaller than previous models, control temperature, humidity,


ventilation and fan settings from any web-enabled device anywhere in the world, and can help


homeowners cut annual heating and cooling costs by up to 33 percent.


The thermostats connect to the Internet through Honeywell’s free Total Connect Comfort


cloud-based application, available in the iTunes store or from Google Play. The app’s uptime is a


virtually perfect 99.999 percent, significantly more dependable than other brands’ thermostat apps.


‘Smaller and sleeker is better when it comes to consumer electronics, and now the same can


be said for Honeywell thermostats: we’re packing more features into a lighter, thinner body to help


them complement home décor, while managing roughly half of a home’s energy consumption ‘ and


half of a homeowner’s energy dollars ‘ more effectively than any other thermostat on the market,”


said Beth Wozniak, president of Honeywell Environmental and Combustion Controls.


Energy efficiency, comfort and convenience are values that homebuilders strive to bring


their buyers.


”Energy efficiency’ isn’t just a catchphrase for homebuyers; they expect it from their new


home because they know being smart about energy use will save them money,” said Brad Conlon,


vice president of national accounts for D.R. Horton (NYSE: DHI), the largest homebuilder in the


United States, as ranked by Builder magazine. ‘Smart programmable thermostats like those made


by Honeywell are a great way to bring value to homebuyers with a relatively low upfront


investment by builders ‘ and they look great on a wall.”


Heating and cooling contractors who have installed the Prestige IAQ Thermostat consider it


to be the world’s smartest thermostat:
