You're smarter than a thermostat.

We built TherMOOstat so you can let us know how you think the rooms feel on campus. You can use TherMOOstat for any building on the main campus whenever you feel comfortable or uncomfortable, and as often as you'd like. With the comfort feedback you're sending us, we're crowdsourcing indoor comfort and giving everyone the opportunity to contribute to comfort and energy savings. We say you’re smarter than a thermostat because we know comfort varies from person to person, and room temperature control shouldn’t solely rely on the thermostat on the wall.

We read every response on TherMOOstat.

Your TherMOOstat comfort feedback helps us better understand how campus buildings are operating. We enjoy reading every comfort vote and every comment you leave for us. 

Your Impact on Campus Comfort

At ECO we're here to find a balance between comfort and energy conservation. We know we need your help to find this balance, which is why your TherMOOstat feedback is so important to us and our work. Just by using TherMOOstat you're helping us save energy on campus. Your impact is reflected in every success story we experience. 

What do we do with your feedback?

Our team looks for issues in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) scheduling, problems with airflow, poorly located thermostats, and assist with some mechanical issues. It's also important to us that you know how your building works and how to use your thermostat. We use your feedback as a way to connect with you and help you understand your building. 

We'd also like to note that we use your TherMOOstat comfort feedback over longer periods of time, looking at years of data to find energy saving opportunities. Scroll down to read the success stories we have about the comfort issues you've helped solve and energy you've helped us save on campus!
