Emerson Thermostats Help Contractors
Fill Home Technology Gap.
New Emerson 80 Series thermostats offer high-end
standard features and easy installation.
Forty percent of home thermostats are more than five years
old according to a survey of homeowners conducted by Emerson
(NYSE: EMR). With the rapid development of the thermostat
market in the last five years, these homes are now in a
technology gap that contactors can help fill with Emerson’s
new 80 Series thermostat line.
“Contractors have a great opportunity to show new options to
homeowners whose thermostats are behind the times and not
offering the accuracy and quality display you can find in
our 80s Series thermostats,” said Ed Blittschau, vice
president marketing, White-Rodgers, Emerson Commercial &
“While 40 percent of the homeowners Emerson surveyed had
dated thermostats, nearly 15 percent of those were more than
10 years old. Think about how much this technology has
improved in the past decade and what a great opening this
presents for contractors,”.
