10 Reason to Install Nest Learning Thermostats
As new generations of the product come to market, (the company just released its 3rd generation model), homeowners should take a second look at the benefits of installing this beautiful and energy-efficient device.
The Nest website boasts that the Nest Learning Thermostat, “Programs itself. Then pays for itself.” The thermostat learns the comfort patterns of your family and within a week will function on that temperature schedule automatically.
Save energy and money
Independent studies have shown that the Nest Thermostat saves homeowners about 10%-12% on heating and 15% on cooling. This translates to a savings of about $140 per year.
The system also has an Eco Temperature setting that goes into effect when the Nest Thermostat senses you are no longer home. The Nest Thermostat connects to your phone, and is able to gauge your location in order to best save energy when you’re away.
No more programming hassles. Nest learns the temperatures you like and programs itself.
Nest automatically turns off the AC a few minutes early, but keeps the fan running. The air stays cool but your AC runs up to 30% less.
A Leaf icon appears when you turn Nest to a temperature that’s energy efficient, a simple yet effective guide to more energy savings.
Adjust thermostat remotely
If the kids are coming home early, you can adjust the thermostat from your phone so that the home is already comfortable by the time they arrive. As long as you have your phone on you, you can change the temperature from anywhere. This is also a great solution for vacation condo rentals in the Branson, MO area.
Get home energy reports
Nest provides reports of your home energy use every day, available in Energy History. Every month, you will receive a Home Report. This will tell you when you use the most energy along with ideas for saving energy.
Four beautiful color options
The 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat now comes in four colors to fit any style: copper, stainless steel, black, and white.
With thermostat rings from copper and steel to black and white, there’s a Nest Thermostat for every home.
Automatically lights up
When you walk in the room, the Nest Thermostat will light up to display the temperature, weather, or time. The display is simple, large, and bright.
Press the ring once and you can see the weather, outdoor temperature, and humidity.
The Nest Thermostat will alert you on your phone if something is wrong, such as low temperatures that can cause frozen pipes or a furnace that is malfunctioning. Not only that, you can connect the Nest to your smoke and CO alarms. If the smoke alarm goes off, the thermostat will turn the fan off. If the CO detectors sounds, the thermostat will shut down the heating system.
Nest products can work with lights, locks, and other products, such as Google Home. Just say, “Ok Google, set my temperature to 75 degrees.”
Nest Thermostats can be integrated with a wide variety of apps and automation systems, including:
