Did you know that by cutting your heat by just 1 degree you can save up to 5% on energy use? With heating costs on the rise and the colder temperatures settling in, this hits home more than ever. Sure you can always just blast the heat when you’re awake and turn it down when you’re asleep or leave the house, but what happens when you forget? Well now there is an even better option. Introducing the Nest Thermostat; an automatic, self contained, smart device that learns your lifestyle and adjusts the heat in your home accordingly. Continue reading to learn how this device can save you money on your home heating bill.
The Nest Thermostat is a smart device that is designed to do what you tell it to do. Plain and simple. No programming and no changing the thermostat are required with this thermostat. The device programs itself within a week of being installed in your home.
Sounds too good to be true right? Here’s how it works: The Nest operates on a Wi-Fi connection which allows it to get weather updates, so it knows how the heat in the home will be affected by the weather outside. It also has Auto Sensor; a feature which allows it to sense movement by the people occupying the space. Over the course of a week, the sensors learn the typical daily routine of the house and it creates a heating schedule, designed to heat the home when needed, and lower the heat when the space is not being occupied. The Nest also has an Energy History Option, which allows you to see how much energy you use over the course of time. All these features combined save you energy, which in turn, SAVES YOU MONEY! Genius!
