The Nest: You’ll never go ‘brrr’ again
It’s hard to believe such an inconspicuous (and stylish) device could have such a big impact, but that ring on the wall in your smart apartment is the king of temperature control. The Google Nest Thermostat has gained a stellar reputation since the first version was launched in 2011 and the good reviews keep coming.
After testing more than a dozen popular smart thermostats, the New York Times recently concluded the Nest remains the top pick. More than 30,000 users agree, giving this smart thermostat a 4.8/5 rating on Google.
Why do they love it?
It saves energy: An energy clock on the Nest homepage keeps tab on the total kWh saved. When we last checked, savings were quickly approaching 60 billion kWh of energy! For individual users, it typically translates into 10% saved on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. Since the thermostat controls half your energy bill, it pays to have a Nest.
It’s so smart: Toasty in the morning. Cool at night. The Nest is a quick study and aims to please. It doesn’t take long for this smart thermostat to learn your preferences and build a schedule that keeps the temperature just right at all times.
It’s user-friendly: With the Nest app, your thermostat lives on your wall and in your pocket. So, when you’re on the way home on a chilly afternoon, tap your smartphone to turn it up and enjoy a warm greeting as you step inside. Welcome home to your smart apartment.
