SIDNEY, Ohio — Emerson Climate Technologies has launched a social media contest for contractors.

Emerson is now accepting photos of decorated thermostats on its Facebook page. The top three submissions, based on number of votes, will be awarded prizes.

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

Participants can submit their photos through the contest application on Emerson’s Facebook page at, or on Instagram, using #ThermostatArt. Participants can enter multiple photos in the contest and each individual can vote on the entries one time per day. The voting ends Dec. 31.
