let you create a pre-set schedule, such as turning your heat down when you are asleep or away from home. "Smart" programmable thermostats can be controlled remotely by smart phone, and sense when the house is unoccupied.
Certain programmable thermostats installed in your Oregon home may be eligible for a cash payment through our State Home Oil Weatherization program.
If your home is primarily heated by oil, propane, kerosene, butane, or wood, you may be eligible for a cash payment if you install a programmable thermostat in your home. Homes primarily heated with natural gas or electric heat do not qualify for SHOW cash payments.
The cash payment is valued at 50 percent of the cost of the project, up to $100 ($2,500 for Community Action Agencies).
See the full SHOW program requirements in the Administrative Rules .
Please Note: Administration of the SHOW program will move to Oregon Housing & Community Services (OHCS) in January 2018.
After installing your programmable thermostat, fill out the SHOW Application and send to the Oregon Department of Energy. Please include your completed Energy Audit Checklist and a copy of your itemized receipt.
Applications are available for owner-occupied homes, rental homes, and Community Action Agencies.
