The average home spends more than $2,200 per year on energy bills and roughly half of this amount goes towards heating and cooling, according to the Department of Energy.
When a programmable thermostat is set and used properly, a homeowner can save about $180 annually.
But the problem is, virtually everyone with a programmable thermostat doesn’t set or use it properly.
Nest Labs aims to solve this problem with a new thermostat that’s simple, sleek, intuitive, and smart.
Nest learns by remembering temperature adjustments entered over time. It creates a custom schedule from adjustments or can be manually programmed for seven days with 20 set points per day.
Nest shows a leaf when you’re saving energy and displays the time it will take to arrive at a certain temperature. Nest also has an auto-away mode and can be adjusted remotely through a laptop or mobile phone.Thanks to Jetson Green
