Smart technology and the internet of things (IOT) means that people are getting more devices to upgrade their quality of life, such as smart TVs and fridges, wireless speakers and even smart door locks. Some of these convenient devices help you save on your energy bills. One such is the Nest Thermostat, the first ENERGY STAR®-certified thermostat that is gradually becoming the preferred temperature controlling device for homes as opposed to programmable thermostats.
How Do You Benefit From the Nest Thermostat?
Since heating and cooling costs eat up a large portion of the monthly budget, efficient ways of controlling the temperature with a thermostat make sense. This is where the Nest Thermostat comes into play. The Nest Thermostat can help you save up on an average of 10% to 12% on your heating bills and around 15% on your cooling bills; meaning that in under two years, it can basically pay for itself.
Some people, however, still prefer programmable thermostats. Unfortunately, despite its claims of energy savings, programmable thermostats can’t provide any proof that it can do what it claims. On the other hand, the Nest Learning Thermostat can do all that and more; it can automatically adapt as the seasons change.
Simply keep on using the Nest Thermostat for a week, and it’ll know exactly what you want. For instance, if you change your temperature in the morning and night, it will immediately adjust your home’s heating at those times, creating a steady schedule according to your wants. You can even make any room you want a priority with the Nest Temperature Sensor.
Another benefit is its Eco Temperature, which allows you to save energy whenever you’re out of the house. It can also keep an eye on your home’s heating and cooling system. The moment it detects a potential burst pipe, furnace problems or carbon monoxide leak, it will immediately alert you on your phone that there’s something wrong. That way, you can immediately call a professional to repair the damage.
