It programs itself, automatically saves energy when you’re away, and can easily be controlled using your phone. It even sends you alerts when it notices an issue within your HVAC system. Continue reading to learn more about the features of benefits of the Nest Learning Thermostat.
Features and Benefits
In independent studies, Nest thermostats saved an average of 10 to 12 percent on heating bills and 15 percent on cooling bills. That means it can pay for itself in under two years depending on your usage.
The Nest Learning Thermostat also lets you know when you're saving energy by displaying a leaf on the screen. The Leaf learns how to help you save, so it appears at different temperatures for different families.
Controlled from the Nest app
With the Google Home app, you can easily control your thermostat from anywhere. Depending on what type of system you have, you can: change the target temperature, switch the system's fan, change your temperature schedule, and more.
Most homes don't have even temperatures across every room, and not everyone wants their room at the same setting. With the Nest Temperature Sensor, you can let your Learning Thermostat know which room should be at a certain temperature at a specific time of day. Whether you are looking for the same temperature throughout the home or more tailored comfort, you can increase accuracy with up to 10 sensors. The sensors detect temperature, humidity, proximity, occupancy, and ambient light to provide maximum comfort. They can be placed on a wall or shelf then can be set up in the Nest app and left to work their magic!
Matches any decor
Not only can the Learning Thermostat be tailored to your specific comfort needs, but it can also match your home's specific aesthetic. The dial portion comes in many colors including stainless steel, white, black, copper, brass, polished steel, and mirror black.
HVAC monitoring is a helpful thermostat feature that can identify potential issues with your HVAC system. If a potential issue is detected, the thermostat will send you an alert via email or a Google Home app notification. The alert will tell you which system (heating or cooling) may have been affected so that you can take action before any problems get worse. These alerts also give HVAC technicians more context before coming out for service, which helps expedite the diagnosis and repair process.
If your thermostat detects an issue that may require immediate attention, you will receive an urgent alert right away. For example, if you turn on your cooling system but your home becomes warmer, your thermostat will let you know that you may have a serious issue with your air conditioning system.
If your thermostat detects an issue that should be fixed soon, you will receive an early warning alert within a week of detecting the problem. For example, if your gas furnace briefly stops heating several times during its operation, you may have a problem with the flame sensor. If this problem isn’t fixed, it could cause your furnace to completely break down.
The Nest Learning Thermostat works in both residential and commercial settings and with zone-controlled systems. The thermostat works with 95 percent of 24V heating and cooling systems including gas, forced air, electric, heat pump, radiant, oil, hot water, solar, and geothermal, making it perfect for any home. Plus, you can enjoy a 5-year warranty when purchasing through a Nest Pro, like ECI Comfort.
