Pat Dehner, Director of Training and Development at P.C. Richard & Son, shows us what the Nest thermostat is and talks about its features and ease of installation.
Most people leave their homes set at one temperature and forget to change it when they leave. If you have a programmable thermostat, it may be too difficult to program on a regular basis. Enter the Nest, a learning thermostat that’s really easy to operate.
All you have to do is turn the temperature up or down to the way you like it. After about one week, the Nest thermostat learns your habits and will automatically make these adjustments for you. There will be no buttons, no clocks to set, nothing to adjust! It figures out your lifestyle automatically.
The Nest thermostat can sense when you leave the home, so will automatically adjust to a low temperature that you pre-determine. It can also be adjusted remotely through your computer, smartphone or tablet from anywhere in the world.
The Nest thermostat is also easy to install; anyone can complete the installation in approximately thirty minutes. In addition, it’s compatible with their entire family of products so that they work together.
You can also receive notifications to show just how much energy you’re saving. You can get monthly reports that include tips on how you can save even more. The Nest thermostat will save you so much in energy costs that it will pay for itself in one year! It’s a great investment.
