Honeywell Home is a global leader in creating innovative energy solutions. Honeywell Home can trace its roots to the invention of the very first thermostat. Albert Butz patented the furnace regulator and alarm system. His “damper-flapper” invention is the forerunner of the modern thermostat.
Honeywell Home creates solutions that improve the quality of life for people around the globe—generating clean, healthy energy and using it more efficiently; increasing your safety and security; enabling people to connect, communicate and collaborate; and equipping our customers to be even more productive.
In 1998, Honeywell Home, White-Rogers and GE formed Thermostat Recycling Company as a voluntary organization in order to ensure the safe collection and disposal of mercury-containing thermostats.
