KB Home to Incorporate Carrier Côr Thermostats in its New Homes

KB Home, one of the nation’s largest and most recognized homebuilders, today announced that homes at nearly all of its newly-opened communities in 2016 and beyond will include a Carrier® Côr thermostat, a smart-home technology designed to help homeowners save energy, as well as maximize their convenience and comfort.

Using Wi-Fi technology and sophisticated software, the Côr thermostat learns the characteristics of a home and the way homeowners live in it, then analyzes outside weather patterns to intelligently adapt heating and cooling system performance for greater efficiency and comfort.

The Côr thermostat’s smartphone-like touchscreen and sleek design provide an enhanced and intuitive user experience, making it easy for KB homeowners to take advantage of its wide range of benefits. Users can control their home’s heating and cooling and monitor their energy consumption conveniently from any smart device, or let Côr’s technology automatically adjust temperature settings for them.

Incorporating the Côr interactive thermostat is the builder's latest in a series of continual improvements to the sustainability of its new homes. All KB homes are ENERGY STAR® certified, have WaterSense® labeled fixtures, and include materials, systems and other features that are designed to promote a healthier indoor environment.

“As one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, we understand the importance of designing our homes to support today’s connected lifestyles,” said Dan Bridleman, senior vice president of Sustainability, Technology and Strategic Sourcing at KB Home. “By equipping KB homes with Carrier’s innovative Côr thermostat, we empower our homeowners to better control their home’s energy usage, right from their fingertips.”

While Côr offers standard comfort modes for optimal performance during various times of day, its settings can also be customized to suit individual preferences and for specific circumstances, such as “Exercising” or “Working from Home.”

Côr also monitors energy use patterns and delivers state-of-the-art usage reports as well as customized energy-conserving tips to help homeowners understand their heating and cooling system’s performance and make modifications to help maximize energy savings.
