Nest Learning

Did you know that your thermostat can control even up to half of your heating or cooling bill? You try to adjust temperature by changing it to different settings until your family and you are comfortable. But how many times you forgot to change the temperature in your home before you left for work?

A thermostat that learns?

Even if you have high-tech thermostat installed in your home which is connected to the network, how many times you forgot to change the settings? The Nest Thermostat learns about your family’s temperature preference and habits when you use it. Every time you change temperature it will remember the time, date, and type of adjustment. After about 2 weeks your Nest Thermostat will adjust temperature in your home to the ideal level. It will know the difference between weekend and weekday.

So if you like to sleep in on the weekends it will start heating or cooling mode a little later. It even learns how long your furnace or air conditioner takes to reach targeted temperature, so it will turn on your cooling or heating system in advance so your house has exact temperature you want and when you want it. The Nest Thermostat is a hockey-puck-shaped like device with round screen.

You simply turn a ring around to adjust the temperature and the screen will light up blue for cool or red for heat, and will show the temperature number in the middle. When you set up energy-saving temperature –the green leaf will pop up to congratulate you on making great choice. You can even change the temperature settings right from your mobile app. Yes, it has this convenient feature too.


So, is it worth to buy The Nest Thermostat? The answer is “yes”. It is a little pricey, but you will see that is worth every penny and it will save you money in the long run.
