"ControlTemp Thermostats Drive Large Cost Savings & Improved Profits For Landlords and Property Managers"
Innovative Tamper Proof Thermostat Limits Temperatures Settings to Prevent Energy Waste

Parsippany, NJ – December 4, 2012 – Today, ControlTemp Thermostats introduces the CT72 Basic Tamper Proof Thermostat to its thermostat line designed to help property managers unleash technology to reduce utility costs. The intelligently designed CT72 Basic Tamper Proof Thermostats is a simple, effective way to reduce utility costs in master metered multi-family apartments, vacation homes, office space, or rental properties where the property owner not the tenant pays the utility bills. Property owners around the nation are all too familiar with skyrocketing utility costs from wasted heating and cooling usage in their properties.

“Utilities make up the largest operating expense incurred by property owners. It can be up to 23% of operating costs. By installing our thermostats, property owners can reduce utility costs, by more than 10%, which will directly increase net operating income and the value of the property,” said Cheryl Lowe, managing partner with ControlTemp Thermostats.

The CT72 Basic Tamper Proof Thermostat has a built in maximum heat limit of 72 degrees and a minimum cool limit of 72 degrees. These settings allow the tenant to adjust the temperature up to but not above these preset thresholds to be comfortable. The maximum and minimum limits prevent excessive energy waste commonly found in the rental market today.

“Unfortunately, most tenants think that because utilities are included in their monthly rent, it is ok to turn up the heat while leaving the windows open or run the air conditioning continuously. Not only does it cost property owners hundreds or thousands of dollars more per month in wasted utility costs, it also causes excessive carbon emissions and excessive wear and tear on their HVAC system,” states Lowe.

The unique feature of the CT72 Basic Tamper Proof Thermostat is that the temperature limits for heating and cooling are hard coded into the unit and cannot be changed or tampered with by the tenants. The unit’s streamlined design and limited buttons make it easy to use and hard to tamper with. The unit is priced at $59.99, which is equivalent to a conventional thermostat, making it an easy decision for new construction or a replacement unit.

The CT72 Basic Tamper Proof Thermostats is available immediately. Visit the company’s website at www.ControlTempThermostats.com for additional information..

"New Tamper Proof Thermostat Improves Control and Provides Up To 30% Cost Savings"
The ControlTemp CT2001 helps rental property owners save money and go green

NEW YORK CITY -  December 1, 2010  / Landlords, property managers and vacation home owners who have long been frustrated with people running up their utility bills by setting the thermostat to extremes now have a new way to regain control of their heating and cooling costs. ControlTemp Thermostats today announced the release of the new CT2001 Deluxe Tamper Proof Thermostat, which allows owners to set customized temperature limits and dynamically adjust the room temperature based on their settings and not the whims of tenants.   

The new CT2001 is the next generation of the ControlTemp deluxe tamper proof thermostat line and builds on the success of the previous CT1001 model.  This proven technology has been demonstrated to be more effective than thermostat lock boxes, thermostat guards and traditional thermostats in controlling heating and cooling costs.  Landlords and property managers have been using the CT1001 for more than two years with great success in apartments, vacation homes, churches, schools, and small commercials spaces such as hair salons, conference rooms, and small retail stores.

The CT2001 Deluxe Tamper Proof Thermostat features include: Custom maximum heating and minimum cooling limits, enhanced partial or full screen lock modes, improved 7-day programming, automatic changeover between heat and cool, battery backup, and an easy to read backlit touch screen. The thermostat also works with a number of different types of HVAC systems including boilers, furnaces, and single and multi stage heat pumps.  Detailed specifications and information for this and all ControlTemp products are  available online.

The CT2001 is ideal for rental properties as it allows the owner to control the maximum and minimum settings and 7-day schedule while still providing the tenant some limited access to make temperature changes. 

David Lowe, co-founder of ControlTemp Thermostats says “We are excited about the introduction of the CT2001.  Based on the feedback from our customers, we believe we have created the most advanced tamper proof thermostat on the market today. The CT2001 will greatly reduce our customers’ heating and cooling costs.”

Research conducted using tools from the US Department of Energy and EnergyStar, shows that by limiting temperature changes through the maximum set point feature, owners can save as much as 17% on their heating and cooling costs. When this feature is combined with the ability to run the thermostat on a schedule that cannot be overridden by the tenant, heating and cooling savings can increase to as high as 32%.

The CT2001 is available immediately.  It will be priced at $149.99, the same price as previous model.  It can be purchased direct at the ControlTemp Thermostat web site or at Amazon.com.

ControlTemp Thermostats offers a standard 1 year limited warranty as well as a 1 year “Energy Savings Guarantee.” ControlTemp Thermostats will guarantee that purchasers of the CT2001 Deluxe Tamper Proof Thermostat will save at least 10% of their heating/cooling cost or the cost of the thermostat within the first year of purchase or their money back.  For more details on this guarantee visit www.controltempthermostats.com.
