Smart thermostats have been gaining traction over the past few years and for a good reason. Aside from being cuter on the eye and thus adding to the overall appeal of the home, these intelligent beauties can help you save significant energy throughout the year. Independent studies from real homeowners show that people who install the thermostats save 10 to 12 percent on heating, and up to 15 percent on cooling.
One of the best smart thermostats, the NEST, promises even greater value. The ultra-smart, self-learning thermostat, which has been proven to pay for itself within just two years of installation, learns about your routines and preferences to maximize comfort while minimizing energy use. The following are three reasons you should consider installing the NEST thermostat this year.
The NEST is one of the most user-friendly thermostats around. It’s simple to install, easy to use and doesn’t take a lot of your time to maintain. When you walk by, the thermostat lights up, so you can read the current setting and the impact on indoor temperatures. What’s more, the lighting changes between blue and red depending on whether you’re using the air conditioner or furnace. It can even detect temperature and weather conditions outside if you feed it accurate local information.
You probably didn’t see this coming, but yes, you can control the NEST thermostat from any location. How is this possible? Well, the NEST can connect to local wireless networks. So, all you need to do is set it to connect to your Wi-Fi. To make your job even easier, the thermostat has an app that you can download from the Google App Store or Apple iOS. Once you’ve installed the app, you can control every aspect of the thermostat from anywhere.
The NEST thermostat has been designed in such a way that it intelligently monitors the current environment and informs homeowners whenever energy-saving opportunities show up. Simply choose an energy-saving temperature, and the NEST will display a Green Leaf. Then, tap on the Green Leaf to display information on more ways to save energy. Usually, within a few days of installation, the NEST will have learned your preferences and will personalize the Green Leaf based on them.
