Putting in new light bulbs. Efficient appliances. Unplugging everything when you leave. It saves energy, sure. But it’s a drop in the bucket compared to what a thermostat can do. Your thermostat controls half your energy bill. And it’s wasting energy.
Programming isn’t proven.
Programmable thermostats claim savings on your energy bill. But they can’t prove it. They make you punch in every temperature change you want throughout the day, and usually you can only program 2 or 3 changes. It’s annoying and complicated – most people don’t even bother. So despite their claims, most programmed thermostats stay at the same temperature all day. And that wastes energy. Programming just doesn’t work. So Nest found a better way. And a whole new way: it learns.
Learning changed everything.
Why should you have to figure out your thermostat? The Nest Thermostat learns from you. Just turn it up and down for the first few days. The Nest Thermostat will get to know the temperatures you like and when you like them. Then it programs itself and creates a schedule for you. The Nest Thermostat even learns from your home and figures out how it heats or cools, because no two homes are exactly the same.
