Will I save energy by enrolling in the smart thermostat program?

A properly installed and configured ecobee smart thermostat has been shown to save up to 23% in heating and cooling costs during normal operation. Yet on days when adjustment events occur, more energy will be required to pre-cool or pre-heat your home and to return your home to its regularly scheduled set point after the adjustment event concludes. On event days, you may not save energy from having your thermostat adjusted.
