Bill Richards, Service Manager, discusses this process.
We introduce new products to our residential customers by making these things an option. The option of installing it, the option of upgrading; as we well know this is a world of gadgets and different things that people like. I think using the cellphone to help is a really nice feature. For instance if you were to plan to come home unexpectedly early and you need a new setback, before you leave the office, connect to the Internet and change the temperature before you get home. The Honeywell Presitige is a really nice thermostat that has many features. So that's kind of how we operate at Interstate. It’s not a must to operate heating and cooling but its such a nice option and with many new features it's something home owners really enjoy on their heating and cooling system.
