ecobee Switch+

Stuart Lombard was on a mission to reduce his family’s carbon footprint and save money.  He found several ways to conserve energy, but most were complex and expensive.  After discovering that heating and cooling made up a majority of his home energy use, he soon founded ecobee in 2007.  Ecobee is a company that makes “wi-fi enabled smart thermostats for residential and commercial applications that are intuitive to use and beautiful to look at.”  In addition to smart thermostats, the company now offers ecobee Switch+.
