The Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing Cooperative Research Program (PATH CoRP) has awarded the Norwalk, CT-based research and consulting firm of Steven Winter Associates (SWA) a grant to support its research and development of an energy-saving thermostat that the firm is looking to bring to market in the near future.

Appropriate for residential applications, the firm said its thermostat, which incorporates a variable deadband control, is designed to help reduce the operating costs associated with home ownership. According to SWA, its product is designed to allow heating and cooling systems to automatically turn on/off with less frequency than that of commercial thermostats, reduce equipment cycling, and provide more efficient energy use.

SWA will receive $186,346 under the PATH CoRP grants, and will provide $90,000 in cost sharing, for a total of $276,346.

For more information regarding the programmable thermostat, contact SWA at 203-857-0200.
