Smart thermostats do more than automate a fixed heating and cooling climate control schedule. These app-enabled smart home devices make it possible to adjust your thermostat from your smartphone whether you’re on the couch, at the grocery store or on vacation — anywhere your smartphone is connected to a cellular or a Wi-Fi network. Many of these devices also work with Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri now too, giving you yet another way to adjust your thermostat settings with remote access.
As Nest PRO installers, we decided to take a look at how the system works and why it is a benefit.
The benefits of smart thermostats
The original Nest thermostat was released in 2011 and since then, the company estimates that it has saved over eight billion kWh of energy across the millions of homes around the world that it now operates in. But how do smart thermostats save you money?
The key part of the phrase is ‘smart’ and just like any other smart technology, the Nest PRO can learn about you, your daily patterns and can adjust your heating accordingly. For example, most people like to wake to a warm house but don’t mind things being a little cooler during the day while no-one is home. The thermostat will learn your schedule and, paired with location recognition of your smartphone, will know when you are home or at work.
The tech needs just one week of you programming in your desired schedules and it will adjust accordingly. But you can also control it from the smartphone app – so if you finish work earlier than expected, you can turn up the heating so the house is nice and warm when you get in. You can also use the system to control hot water and if you are going away and forget to turn off the hot water, you can do it from the app.
Nest Learning Thermostat
The Nest Learning Thermostat is in our opinion the most stylish smart thermostat out there. Its rounded design harkens back to old-school thermostats, but it has a modern look that fits in with nearly any home decor.
