A smart thermostat allows you to create automatic and programmable temperature settings based on your daily activities, heating and cooling needs, and weather conditions.
You can also make the most of your heating system without wasting energy or money by using a smart thermostat such as the Google Nest Learning Thermostat.
A thermostat is an essential part of any home. The type of thermostat in your home can have a significant impact on your energy bills. Nearly half of your monthly energy costs are controlled by your thermostat. That’s more than appliances, lighting, TVs, computers and stereos combined. Switching to a smart thermostat can save energy and thus reduce your energy bills.
A smart thermostat learns your schedule, programs itself automatically and helps save energy when you’re away. One of the advantages of a smart thermostat is that it can learn a household’s pattern and adjust heating and cooling according to when a home is occupied or is about to be occupied. A lot of energy is wasted heating and cooling an empty home.
Nest automatically turns itself down when nobody’s home to help you save energy. You can also control your smart thermostat settings to your personalized needs with the help of your Energy History in the Nest app to see how much energy you use and why.
Standard programmable thermostats save energy only if they are programmed correctly. However, most residential users never program them. Installing a smart thermostat is a great addition to your home’s systems and can greatly improve your overall home comfort experience.
