TXU Energy Introduces iThermostat
Mar 08, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
TXU Energy announced its new iThermostat that it said allows business owners to see, through the Internet, how their building HVAC (AC system) is operating and adjust their HVAC settings which will help their consumption and save on energy costs.
According to a release, average size businesses using 76 MWh annually that upgrade to the TXU Energy iThermostat can save an estimated $12,000 dollars over the 15-year life of the product.
The company said a Texas business HVAC unit typically represents more than half of its total electricity consumption. Having greater control over the heating and cooling system by using a programmable thermostat, like the TXU Energy iThermostat, can help with electricity costs.
TXU Energy noted that iThermostat is a fully Web-enabled programmable thermostat that lets businesses monitor and manage their building's temperature from any Internet device.
"Our focus is to help our business customers better manage their energy costs," said Tom Leverton, chief operating officer, TXU Energy. "We know that business owners are keeping a watchful eye on expenses. Thanks to this technology, business owners can now see in near real-time how they're using their energy so that they can adjust their behavior accordingly and improve their bottom line."
