Get Started

Thermostats and home automation can help you maintain good comfort levels and healthy indoor air quality in your New Hampshire or Maine home. With new technology advances and increasingly interconnected services, home automation systems allow you to control much more than the temperature inside your home.

Home Automation Has Grown Up

Home automation is a broad category. Any technology that remotely controls and monitors the functions, humidity, temperature or ventilation of your home falls under the category. Yankee Thermal Imaging can install monitors through rebate and incentive programs.

A "smart" home can give you big rewards from a relatively small investment. The most advanced systems allow you to control your lighting, heating and cooling, and some appliances with the swipe of a screen.

Energy Monitors

Monitors that track your electricity use can help you decide if your old fridge or freezer is ready for replacement, and can also help you take advantage of time-of-use power rates by programming large use electrical appliances like the clothes dryer.

Controlling Your Home's Zones

Programmable thermostats allow you control the heat delivered to the whole house or to specific zones in your home. Not all forced air systems have separate zones, but more homes are being designed with zoned forced air systems.

Control Your Settings with a Programmable Thermostat

On top of the energy savings our team can help you achieve via thermal envelope improvements in your home, you can also save energy costs every year by using a programmable thermostat. A programmable thermostat allows you to keep your house cooler when you're away at work or school, for example. To make the most of your programmable thermostat:

  • Use the energy-saving set points for long periods of time.
  • Avoid overriding your programmed settings as much as possible.
  • Use the "hold" or lower-temperature "vacation" feature when you are away for weekends or vacations.
  • Don't set thermostats higher than you want; your furnace will only run longer than needed, and your home won't warm up any faster.

The Benefits of Thermostats & Monitors for Low-Energy Homes

If you're building a Net Zero Energy Home or a Passive House in Portsmouth or Dover, home automation is a key way to optimize the energy use of your household!

Smart monitors can help New Hampshire homeowners with solar electric or solar thermal system schedule appliances to run during the time when you are getting the most "free" energy from the sun. Home automation can also eliminate "phantom loads," the energy used by electronic devices when they are in standby mode. It's estimated that phantom loads make up 7 percent of the electricity used in the US.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • "Yankee Thermal Imaging is very professional and efficient. Very thankful that we completed this project on our house. It needed the update in ventilation and insulation. I would highly recommend every home owner to have the home inspection done.

    LuEllen, Strafford, NH
  • "The crew knew what they were going to do, worked well as a team, took care to even cover the floor, and cleaned up everything. They were polite, good natured, and efficient. There is a positive change in the temperature inside the house and drafty rooms are no longer drafty.

    Jacquelyn & Harold, Claremont, NH
  • "Last year I had Yankee Thermal Imaging come to my home to do some energy work. I was impressed by their knowledge of home insulation, and energy improvement. They were able to place insulation into areas of the house that I thought would not be accessible."

    Don, Peterborough, NH

  • "What a great Company! I took a chance with YTI and had an energy audit done on my 250-year-old antique cape home. John, the energy auditor, was friendly, professional, and thorough. His visit was followed by a detailed report and suggestions for insulation.

    Joan, Londonderry, NH
  • I wanted to make my house more energy efficient and from the start, coordinating with the auditor, Laurie in the main office and the crew were all very intelligent, friendly, knew their trade and pleasant to work with.

  • Your workers were at my daughter's house (Heidi Soltysiak) for 3 days putting insulation in several places in the house. I was there since my daughter had to work. I was so impressed with the workers especially the team leader. He made sure the other two newer workers did everything right.
    Jody Kinner, Keene, NH
  • Your crew has one more day tomorrow, but I wanted to email you to say they have been incredible. Every guy on the crew has been kind, courteous, clean, respectful and meticulous with their work and the cleanup at the end of the day. All of them are good people and true assets to your company.
