How can HōlHōm save me money when the price of electricity is high?

QuickTip – ButtonSelect_sm > MAIN MENU> EVENTS RESPONSE SETTINGS> CONSERVATION SETTINGS

If you are receiving electricity prices from your smart meter, your HōlHōm can automatically respond to increased electricity prices and adjust your temperature to save you money.

The following table shows how HōlHōm adjusts your temperature based on the electricity price and your conservation setting.  For example if you use a balanced setting and receive a Tier 3 price, the Orange light will come on and your temperature will be adjusted by 2 °F.

By default your conservation setting is Max Comfort and HōlHōm will ignore price increases.

 Tier #  Light Color Max Savings(100 %) Savings(75 %) Balanced(50 %) Comfort(25 %) Max Comfort(0 %)
1 None 0 °F 0 °F 0 °F 0 °F 0 °F
2 Yellow 2 °F 1.5 °F 1 °F 0.5 °F 0 °F
3 Orange 4 °F 3 °F 2 °F 1 °F 0 °F
4 Red 6 °F 4.5 °F 3 °F 1.5 °F 0 °F
5 Red 8 °F 6 °F 4 °F 2 °F 0 °F
