Heating and cooling accounts for roughly half of your home’s energy expenses making it one of the most expensive utilities in your home. Smart thermostats can help you manage this expense by saving you money and adding a layer of convenience. The Nest 3 thermostat allows you to enjoy home comfort all year round while still maintaining your home’s energy expense at an affordable level.
What is a “Smart” thermostat?
Smart thermostats remove the need to think about how to program your thermostat, they do it for you. The Nest thermostat requires a quick set-up which should only take about 30 minutes. After answering a few simple questions, Nest is ready to go.
Nest’s smart learning thermostats have an automated system so you can set the device to your desired temperature and what your schedule is. The system learns when you’re away from home and adjusts accordingly to save you money. Nest personalizes its features by learning about your home and maintaining a balance of comfort and savings. If you let the system know that you arrive home from work at 6PM, it will turn on and adjust to your desired temperature by that time.

Nest sends its users a monthly email which details the user’s usage data and the changes the system has made to save on energy. Nest’s user-friendly interface makes it easy to compare energy savings data. Using Nest is as easy as plugging it in, telling it what you want, and letting the system start learning how your home can save energy.
Nest thermostats have a sleek and simple design which fit seamlessly into any home. The design features a large dial display with an uncomplicated interface.
When using the Nest E or Nest 3 thermostat, a leaf icon appears on the display to indicate that you’re saving money on energy and to guide you towards a routine of energy savings. As the system learns your preferences over time, it remembers and makes automatic adjustments to your preferences.
