The Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd Generation is a new and improved smart thermostat, which in its first generation was already the smartest option on the market. It learns your habits and adapts to your lifestyle, optimizing itself to turn up and down your heat or cooling system as it fits with your lifestyle and maximizes energy savings.
How Does the Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd Generation Work?
Install the Nest 3rd generation device just how you would install any old thermostat, or replace your existing thermostat easily with the new Nest device. Then live with your Nest for a week or so, adjusting the temperature to what feels comfortable for you. The device will begin to learn your habits, what times of day you require more heat or cooling, and combining that with other data, Nest will learn when you are home and when you need cooling or heat. It saves you energy by remembering to adjust itself when you forget, or changing automatically at moments when you don't actually need heating or cooling, for example when you are asleep or at work. With the nicely designed and easy-to-use Nest app, you can control your thermostat remotely from your phone or device. For example, when you're at work, or just upstairs and don't want to get out of bed or off the couch.
What Does The Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd Generation Look Like?
The thermostat by Nest is an aesthetically pleasing and well designed piece of hardware that affixes to your wall just like any other thermostat. The third generation is new and improved with a higher-resolution, bigger screen, and flatter low-profile design.
Does The Nest Thermostat Save Energy?
Yes, in independent studies by research agencies, the Nest thermostat effectively learned and adapted enough to save an average of 10-12% for heating and 15% for cooling over conventional thermostats due to its dynamic temperature adaptation. Nest can tell when you are not home and shuts itself off, avoiding the unneccessary heating or cooling of an empty house.
Will My Energy Company Give Me a Nest Rebate?
Most energy companies offer some sort of rebate for Nest's revolutionary energy-saving powers. Check with your local utility company to see if you qualify.
