Save Energy With Your Connected Annapolis App This Winter

Did you know that your HVAC and heating units are the greatest users of electricity at home? Your new smart thermostat can help you manage the temperature at home? If you haven’t signed up yet for your new smart thermostat, contact us at or call us at 1-855-81-CONNECT and press option 3 and let us know you’d like your new thermostat installed for free from our professional installers.

Not sure how to use the thermostat or optimize it to the fullest? No problem, we’re here to help. Just send us an email or give us a call at the above number and let us know you’d like a telephone or zoom training session.

Lastly, leaving windows and doors open during the day help air escape, making your heating system work harder and increasing your energy bill. Pay attention to the door and window sensor alerts on your app to make sure the air is staying in!
