BGE Rebates Available for Nest Thermostats

Sep 21, 2018 | Cooling

Save energy and money
Heating and cooling usually account for up to 50% of the energy you use at home. A great way to reduce energy use is to install an ENERGY STAR® certified smart thermostat, which is a Wi-Fi enabled device that automatically adjusts your home’s temperature. It’s convenient, easy to use and saves energy—and money! Plus, you can get a $100 Smart Thermostat Rebate from BGE on select models!

BGE also offers a Thermostat Optimization Program which is a process that uses data from your smart thermostat to learn about how your house reacts to various weather conditions. With these insights, your smart thermostat can automatically make adjustments customized for your home. As a result, you can enjoy increased comfort and energy savings all year long!

Contemporary Air Systems recommends the installation of a Nest Thermostat E or Nest Learning Thermostat which are eligible for both the BGE Smart Thermostat Rebate and BGE’s Thermostat Optimization Program.  It’s been noted that a Nest Smart Thermostat can pay for itself in less than two years in energy savings, but with the rebate and optimization program from BGE you’ll be putting money back in your pocket almost immediately.  What makes the Nest Smart Thermostats such a good choice?

The NEST Thermostat E
The Nest Thermostat E features a frosted display that blends into the background with a sleek inconspicuous display.  When you download the free Nest app for iOS 8 or Android 4 or later you can change the temperature from anywhere – the beach, your office, or even your bed.

You can check the Nest app to see how much energy you use and why.  With the Home/Away assist you can conserve energy when you’re away. The thermostat turns itself down after you leave, so you aren’t heating or cooling an empty home.  Increase your system’s energy-efficiency and start saving from day one.

The Nest Thermostat E has wide compatibility and provides a real upgrade to your existing heating and cooling system.  The Nest Thermostat E works with most 24V heating and cooling systems, including gas, electric, forced air, heat pump, radiant, oil, hot water, solar and geothermal.

The Nest Thermostat E’s wireless connection consumes less power with a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery. It’s a natural addition to your smart home and works With Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Wink.

The Nest Learning Thermostat
The Nest Learning Thermostat makes a stylish addition to your home.  The thin, sleek design with bigger, crisper display features a stainless steel ring.  It connects to your existing home network and its convenient Wi-Fi capabilities offer a secure and reliable connection.  You can control the temperature from anywhere once you download the free app, allowing you to adjust your thermostat from your smartphone, tablet or laptop, even when you’re miles away.  You’ll also get safety temperature alerts on your phone or tablet if your home gets dangerously hot or cold.

The Nest Learning Thermostat accommodates your schedule and temperature preferences so that within a week the Nest Learning Thermostat starts programming itself to the temperatures you like. “Away” mode automatically switches to an energy-efficient temperature when you’re not home.  When you are home the Nest Farsight illuminates the thermostat’s display when it spots you across the room so that you can stay apprised of the temperature.  From the Nest App you’ll be able to review your energy history and report and track how much energy you’ve used and follow tips that will help you conserve.  When you make an energy-saving temperature adjustment the Nest Leaf will notify you immediately.

The Nest Learning Thermostat also works with 95 percent of 24V heating and cooling systems, including gas, electric, forced air, heat pump, radiant, oil, hot water, solar and geothermal.

Receive your rebate and an extended warranty
To be eligible for the rebates listed above, your home must meet certain requirements.  Limit three rebates per household.

  1. This offer is valid for BGE residential customers applying through the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program only. To qualify, the homeowner must be a residential BGE customer with a BGE account number.

Contemporary Air Systems did an excellent job on installing our new Bryant HVAC System! I had several estimates from other Companies but kept going back to Contemporary Air. Rick and Michelle ( the owners) were so easy to work with ; they complement each other ( Michelle is on top of all the paper work, the BG&E rebate and the registration) , Finances etc. and Rick knows exactly how to get the job done the correct way without missing any small detail.Their installers Aaron and Justin were polite and perfectionist ! The number #1 reason we picked Contemporary Air is we felt we could trust them completely and they did not disappoint! Thanks again Ellieread more

Contemporary air systems replaced my 49 year-old heating and air conditioning system. The work was efficient Timely and very very satisfying. Their technicians are courteous and very considerate of your home. The only complaint I had was Ithe replacement was unreadable for me. The installation was on Friday and a replacement thermostat was delivered promptly on Monday morning. I am thoroughly happy with every aspect of their work and highly recommend them.read more

Cleaned up and gone .Professional all the way. Recommend to anyone.read more

Contemporary Air Services was amazing! I had to have my whole system replaced. They were very professional, friendly and great with my friend's dogs who were staying at my house. They worked until the job was complete and Rick came in to check that everything was good to go before and after the job was complete. They also registered my system for the warranty without me having to do a thing! Highly recommend!read more

The lovely folks at Contemporary Air Systems went out of their way in the customer service department. Michelle was extremely helpful, patient, and informative. Rick is an absolute star! Seriously, I don't think there is anyone nicer than Rick. He's knowledgeable and highly experienced. The two gentlemen that installed our unit were polite, friendly, and tidy. I couldn't be more happy with my experience and would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of their services.read more

I rarely write reviews but the service I received today was excellent. The contractor came to home the same day I called to make an appointment. He was polite and worked quickly to fix both my AC units all while explaining and showing me what the issues were. The price was very reasonable and affordable. Finally a business I can trust. I will always support this business.read more

Contemporary Air Systems has been great since I called nervous about a noise my old unit was making. Rick came out to check and upon discussion, we decided to start moving toward a new system. He & Michelle made the process easy. He worked with my schedule, which is difficult at best, and she worked almost exclusively through email, because it's easier for me. The actual installation was quick & didn't really disrupt the household. Both technicians were awesome, and Rick came to double check everything just in case. The new units have both been tested in this crazy MD weather and they work equally well. I'm excited to see how they impact our power use. I'm very happy with CAS and the treatment from their staff. I'd recommend them to everyone who needs the services they can provide.read more
