If you think you need to be a tech-savvy millennial in order to get a smart thermostat, think again. Whether you’re a millennial, a boomer, or you’re from any other generation, you’d have to be crazy to keep using a traditional thermostat in your home. As ecobee explains on its website, people who use one of its models like the ecobee3 Lite Smart Thermostat save an average of 23% annually on their home energy bills. That’s right… 23%!

Rather than just turn your heating and AC on and off on a time-based schedule, the ecobee 3 Lite uses smart features like outside temperature, humidity, and your schedule to make more frequent adjustments to your systems. The end result is huge energy savings, which is good for the environment and for your wallet.

Amazon and other top retailers sell an ecobee3 Lite Smart Thermostat with 2 Room Sensors bundle, where the unit ships with two remote sensors. This way, the smart thermostat can measure the temperature in two additional rooms of your choosing and adjust your system accordingly. The bundle typically sells for $250, but right now it’s on sale at Amazon for just $198.98. What’s more, it’s shipping out right away as opposed to being delayed by Amazon’s temporary new policy pertaining to nonessential products, so you’ll be saving money by the end of the week!
