Make Your Air Conditioner Smart—For Free

Get a free Wi-Fi device that lets you adjust your window air conditioner with the tap of an app. Plus, earn rewards for doing your part to keep the energy grid reliable.


Control Your A/C With Your Smartphone

Connect your room air conditioner to Wi-Fi with a free smartAC kit and control your home’s temperature on-the-go with the free smartAC Go app.

Make your A/C work for you:

  • Set schedules. Heading home from work? Turn your A/C on to cool your space before you walk through the door.
  • Manage energy. Monitor your energy use in the app. Forgot to turn off your A/C before leaving for the day? Switch it off on the run or at the office.
  • Pamper your pet. Use Pet Mode to manage their comfort while you’re out.
  • Use voice control. Connect your smartAC kit to an Amazon Echo for hands-free cooling.

The smartAC kit is free and yours to keep as long as you participate in at least one set of Cool Points Hours.**

Earn Cool Points

Cool Points are reward points you can earn by doing your part to keep the energy grid reliable. 1,000 Cool Points equals $1.

If you purchased an eligible ENERGY STAR A/C in 2019, you can submit your receipt to receive a $25 rebate check. Learn more.

Participate in Cool Points Hours

Cool Points Hours are energy conservation hours that occur three to five times throughout the summer on very hot days when there is high demand on the energy grid.

During Cool Points Hours, your A/C may shift to a comfortable but slightly higher temperature automatically to conserve energy. We’ll send an email and app notification to let you know when you can expect Cool Points Hours to begin. You can opt out at any time.

  • Participate in Cool Points Hours. Earn 2,500 points ($2.50) every time you participate.
  • Participate in all Cool Points Hours. Get a 5,000 point bonus ($5).
  • Refer a friend. Earn 10,000 bonus points ($10).

If you participated last year, you’ll earn 10 percent more Cool Points this year! That’s 2,750 points ($2.75) per Cool Points Hours, and 5,500 points ($5.50) for participating all summer long.

Redeem Cool Points
