Not anymore. Now, there’s something way cooler… or hotter. Either way, it will keep your house temperature just right!
The Nest thermostat is the first of it’s kind. It is a learning thermostat and picks up on your daily behaviors. Too hot every morning when you get out of bed? No need to dig out the owner’s manual to figure out how to reprogram the thing. Simply turn it down a few mornings in a row and it reprograms itself.
Head out on a vacation and forget to turn off the A/C? Just get out your smart phone and do it. From anywhere.
These things are neat and just one of the ways we can help minimize energy usage. Plus, you’re friends will think you’re a tech-junkie. (And, secretly be very impressed!)
