5 Ways the Nest Thermostat Saves You Money on Energy Costs

Nest Thermostat

The Nest Thermostat is one of the most advanced pieces of technology to be released in years. This nifty, yet effective device can help you save money on your energy costs and give you the peace of mind knowing your AC/Heating system is functioning properly.  McCalls has been installing NEST thermostats in Savannah for years.  Call us for any help or information.  In the meantime here’s more information to help you make the right choice in buying a programmable thermostat.

Here are five ways The Nest can help you save some serious cash.

  1. It works with you to set the temperature

Unlike other conventional thermostats, the Nest Thermostat is unique in that it follows your setting patterns to develop its own. In other words, when you first install the device you will set the temperature first and then the unit will follow your pattern over the course of a week. You don’t need to set it after that point. The device even learns your seasonal patterns, thereby staying accurate all year long.

  1. Automatic Temperature Adjustment

The Nest Learning Thermostat turns itself down automatically when it ‘senses’ you aren’t in your home. When you have an unexpected errand to run, an appointment you thought would be much briefer than it turned out to be, or simply decided to go out for dinner instead of staying in the Nest will automatically adjust your temperature. This saves you money when you would otherwise completely ignore your system. This worry-free no-brainer thermostat makes it easy to save money on your energy bill.

  1. Through Wireless Controls

If you head out for a vacation or have an unexpected trip and want to adjust your temperature the Nest lets you do it! If you own a smart phone, you can adjust your thermostat from it simply by downloading the app. With greater control comes a lower energy bill as well.

  1. With a Helpful ‘Leaf’ Icon

According to experts, changing your temperature by just one degree can reduce your energy usage by 5% overtime. Thanks to the easy to spot ‘Leaf’ Icon and setting from the Nest, you can automatically save energy by following its temperature suggestions. This pre-programmed adjustment gives you the ability to make smarter decisions without ever researching the right way to go about it. Built into this system is this fantastic feature, giving you peace of mind knowing you’re saving money.

  1. Through Awareness

Most of us simply aren’t aware of just how much energy we expend every single day. With the Nest you can sign up to receive email updates notifying you of your energy expenditure. By simply being aware of that expenditure, you can greatly reduce your energy consumption and take proactive steps to reduce it even more. You would be amazed how much damage a degree or two can do to your energy costs, which can leave you wanting to take action.

As you can see, the Nest Thermostat offers a variety of ways to save money on your energy costs. Even if you’re not fully aware of how much you are spending now, the Nest can help you decipher that difference and give you greater awareness of your situation. Who wouldn’t want this device in their home.
