What’s the Nest All About?

No question the modern age has made home life more comfortable. From turning on your crockpot to setting your home’s security system by a cellphone app, we certainly live in an era of convenience. The new generation of thermostat technology from Nest is no exception, providing convenience and energy efficient solutions, while also saving you money. The Nest Learning Thermostat is not only user-friendly, but also maintains and controls the temperature of a house with ease and simplicity. Devices, such as the Nest Thermostat, built to provide an energy efficient schedule, take an additional 19.5 to 36.1 percent off a homeowner’s original energy bill, pre-Nest Thermostat. This thermostat saves the homeowner from steep charges, in part, because of its ability to adapt to and remember the daily habits of each individual. After only a few days, monitoring and recording the temperature adjustments of the owner, as he or she changes the temperature from morning to night, the thermostat is rapidly able to adjust itself, learning your day to day routine and adjust the temperature accordingly. For example, when going to bed, rather than always remembering to change the thermostat, the Nest Thermostat automatically changes the temperature for you. This not only ensures a more temperature-friendly sleep, but also saves the customer significant money.

A great feature of the Nest Thermostat is the Auto-Away function; the thermostat automatically switches the temperature to an energy-efficient setting whether you are sleeping, at work, or on vacation. 90% of all homes are able to adapt to this program. Next time winter break comes around, remembering to adjust the thermostat will be a lesser concern–no need to look forward to an icy doom upon arriving home. No more frozen pipes, no week-late technician and no more sleeping bags.

While the technological/modern era is responsible for increasing light pollution, rising global temperatures, and poisonous gases, technological advancement has also enabled creative innovation to more actively confront unnecessary energy waste. The Nest Thermostat is just one small way, that many people can make a large contribution to saving energy worldwide. And, now onto recycling…
