How You Can Save Money and Energy with Clayton + ecobee

Clayton is always looking for new and innovative ways to make our homes smart, efficient and affordable for our home buyers. That’s why we’ve partnered with ecobee, the company behind the world’s first wi-fi smart thermostat, to add new technology to Clayton Built® homes.


Starting October 1, 2018, every new prefabricated Clayton Built® home will come equipped with an ENERGY STAR® certified ecobee3 lite smart thermostat. By installing this quality designed and easy to use smart device in our homes, we’re able to provide affordable, energy efficient options to home buyers across America.

Bring on the Energy + Cost Savings

Did you know that having an ecobee3 lite smart thermostat in your house could help you save on your heating and cooling costs? 


With a smart thermostat in your home, you can spend less time worrying about how to save on energy costs and more time thinking about what matters the most to you. That’s why the ecobee smart programmable scheduling feature, and optional upgrade occupancy detecting room sensors (sold separately) could help you save on your heating and cooling costs.

Whether you are relaxing on your couch or enjoying a family meal at the dinner table, being able to adjust your home’s climate with the touch of a button makes for an empowered homeowner.


As the only prefabricated housing builder with an exclusive partnership with ecobee, we take great care to go above and beyond to ensure smart home features can be included as part of our affordable housing options.
