Leading HVACR Distributor Johnstone Supply Distributes ecobee Smart Thermostat at Its 340 U.S. Stores.
ecobee, maker of the ecobee Smart Thermostat, announced today that it has finalized a distribution agreement with Johnstone Supply, Inc., the leading cooperative wholesale distributor in the HVACR industry.
The ecobee Smart Thermostat is now being sold at Johnstone branches throughout the United States, served by Johnstone's five regional distribution centers.
"This agreement will greatly enhance our distribution efforts and build sales, as well as increasing our market presence in the HVAC industry," said Stuart Lombard, ecobee's CEO and founder.
The ecobee Smart Thermostat is a sleek electronic device with a full-color touch screen and an easy-to-use interface. Installation is simple for HVAC contractors. The Smart Thermostat's WiFi capability allows users to control all functions remotely, from anywhere, at anytime, through their online ecobee web portal.
An industry first, ecobee has also created a dedicated Technician Portal so technicians can remotely manage and update their ecobee thermostats online, either one at a time or as a group. Additional features include the ability to schedule maintenance and filter change reminders, low and high temperature alerts and also input business information and company logos which will appear on their customer's thermostats and web portals. "We felt it was important to offer these unique features so our technicians could develop deeper, more meaningful customer relationships," noted Lombard.
