Gaining greater control over home energy usage is worthwhile goal for virtually every homeowner. Maintaining a comfortable climate inside the home is one of the most costly aspects of energy usage here in South Central Texas. It’s not unusual for electric bills in this region to be made up of 50% in heating and cooling charges. That makes the cost-effective usage of your HVAC system one of the most important aspects of home-energy efficiency. Here’s one piece of technology that can enable you to take greater control of heating-and-cooling energy usage: the Nest Learning Thermostat.
The Nest Learning Thermostat and Energy Savings
The Nest Learning Thermostat can help help significantly reduce energy costs around your house. While you can certainly control this thermostat manually, the primary advantage of the Nest lies in its name: “Learning.” The Nest has the brains to learn from the way you use it in regulating the temperature inside your home. From the time you connect it to your AC/heating system and turn it on, it begins cataloguing your usage and using that information to save you every penny possible in heating and cooling costs.
After the first few days of “learning” your usage habits, the Nest begins making temperature adjustments without your input—if you want it to, of course. In fact, this thermostat can create a round-the-clock schedule for cooling and heating your home that requires little-to-no input from you. Although you always have the option to take over or can make adjustments any time, you’ll never again need worry over forgetting to turn the thermostat up or down when leaving home, when coming home from work or going to bed for the evening. The Nest Learning Thermostat can take care of it all.
The display on the Nest Learning Thermostat is also impressive. Not only does it show the temperature inside your home, but it can also display the weather outside, along with the time of day. The interface is easy to use and intuitive for all users of all ages and can be toggled between different screens to allow for adjustments to the temperature schedule, Wi-Fi settings, thermostat modes (e.g., from heating to Eco Temperatures, etc.) and much more.
Get Greater Control with a Nest Learning Thermostat
Finally, you maintain full control over the Nest Learning Thermostat. As long as you have internet access, you can adjust your Nest from a smartphone or other smart device using the Nest Thermostat app, no matter where you are in relation to your home. In addition, as we mentioned, the thermostat can be allowed to maintain its own, predetermined schedule based on your usage habits, freeing you from the need to constantly monitor it during the day. There are many possible customizations with this thermostat.
Get Your Own Nest Learning Thermostat
The Nest Learning Thermostat has numerous convenient, money-saving features that make it an attractive purchase for any homeowner interested in saving money on electric bills and maintaining a more consistent level of home comfort. You can purchase your Nest from GVEC Home, too, along with professional installation, which we highly recommend.
