Key Features of the Nest ThermostatThere’s one powerful selling feature of the Nest Thermostat we’d be remiss not to mention first and foremost: it’s designed to save energy without compromising comfort. Nest has helped millions of homeowners conserve billions of kWh in energy. The average Nest owner pays 10-15% less for electricity. This means it’s a product which pays for itself surprisingly quickly. It’s also “easy tech.” Meaning, everything about its interface is designed to make your life easy. You’re not confronted with overwhelming options. Those features are there but they’re out of sight until you actually need them. The end result is a thermostat you can use effortlessly. You can be half blind and in the full throes of morning grogginess and still alter your temperature without a moment’s existential dread. Then there’s the really juicy feature set surrounding artificial intelligence. The Nest Thermostat is dazzlingly smart. Sensors are embedded in the device to recognize movement. When detected, the display lights up with stats like time, temperature, and weather. For the first week post-installation, use the Nest like you would your old thermostat. Change the temperature manually as needed, allowing Nest to learn your preferences. Gradually though, you’ll start to notice that Nest starts to anticipate your requirements. It never stops learning either, adapting to you and your family’s preferences over time.
