Customer Testimonials

  • "My 90 year old mother lives right across the street from me. With the unpredictable weather during the change of each season, I decided that purchasing a housEvolve thermostat kit would be a good investment for me as it would eliminate the need to continually walk back and forth to make sure the temperature in her home was comfortable... housEvolve has truly exceeded my expectations and I would recommend it to anyone who has elderly parents to take care of and make sure are comfortable." -- Patricia from New Jersey
  • "The boiler went out in my second home this winter. Luckily, I was there at the time and had the opportunity to have it fixed right away, but I knew I never wanted to take that kind of chance again. With housEvolve I feel comfortable knowing the system will alert me to this ever happening again, wherever I am, with plenty of time to do something about it." -- Janet from New York, NY
  • "This unit works really well. I can call my shore home and get the temperature reading. If we are going to the house I can turn the a/c on and set the temp that I want when I arrive. It also reports freeze, overheat and other alerts. I'm going to install one in my base home. Check it out.... It will save you energy dollars in the long run. You have total control." -- Ron from Toms River, NJ
  • "Awesome product! It is great to warm up our vacation home for ski weekends before we arrive! All second home owners should have a housEvolve system." -- Ellen from Albany, NY
