Rheem Unveils EcoNet® Smart Thermostat

Have you noticed how many HVAC equipment manufacturers are moving toward using voice-actuated controls? Rheem recently announced that their new thermostat not only maximizes HVAC and water-heating efficiency, but also works with Amazon’s Alexa.

The new EcoNet® Smart Thermostat is an ultra-thin programmable thermostat has a full-color glass touchscreen and is equipped with features modern homeowners expect, such as local weather, one-touch away mode, motion activation, and integrated Wi-Fi, in addition to being compatible with Rheem’s EcoNet mobile app.

It actively monitors integrated Rheem smart heating, cooling, and water heating equipment. It also delivers both routine maintenance notifications, such as filter replacement reminders, as well as critical service alerts (with diagnostic details to expedite repairs) when the equipment requires attention.

Voice control with Alexa is available by enabling the EcoNet skill for Amazon Alexa at www.amazon.com/skills.
