ST. LOUIS — Emerson Climate Technologies has announced the launch a contest, starting today, via social media for contractors and homeowners to share photos of thermostat works of art. Emerson is now accepting photos of decorated thermostats on its Facebook page. Participants can then encourage their online friends to vote for their photo. The top three vote-getters will win prizes.

Emerson said it launched the contest after seeing the popularity of thermostat art on social sites like Pinterest, where its White-Rodgers brand has developed a following of homeowners and home designers sharing creative ways to “hide” or decorate thermostats.
