    Awesome Learning Thermostat

    Posted
    Motownskater

    This Thermostat was the best purchase I have every made, not only does it learn what temperature you like it in your house over time, but the automatic home and away feature is a great money saver. Every month you get an email letting you know how much energy you have used and how you did against other "nesters" in your area. All and all its great tool for your home, lets you see how much energy you have used each month, learns what you like and allows you to control your thermostat from your smart phone.

    I love this thing. Best investment I've ever bought for my home. When I didn't have it, I would forget to turn back the AC when leaving for work and my bill would reflect it. But I've this working in conjunction with my phone location to turn the AC back automatically when I leave my house. It also makes the house comfortable when I come home based off a schedule I program for it. It can work with both your location and schedule to help save money. Great product. I love it. It also will show you your weekly usage in a bar graph which is nice. Tells you your usage and the circumstances such as the weather that day that affected the usage or whether it changed due to your changes or it's observation or your gps location.

    I was in the process of upgrading my HVAC system, so I wanted to give the NEST a try. I purchased 2 for my lower and upper levels. Install was very easy as well as configuration. I have other devices that were easily connected to the NEST. They are expensive; however, with all the features, along with the clean modern look it adds to your home, it was worth the extra price.

    Nest - Learning Thermostat Smart AC for your home

    The Nest - Learning Thermostat - 3rd Generation is the ideal product for anyone who wants to improve the energy use and lower the electric bill in their home. The Nest Thermostat does a phenomenal job of: A. Cutting AC usage while still cooling/heating home B. Lowers energy usage C. Tracks energy usage and gives reports D. Learns from past usage E. Sets temp while user is away F. Cools/Heats home with 3 options of use (App, auto, and manual) In addition to all this the device is easy to install, learns from its users, and provides easy to understand data via email and app usage. This product can change the way you view AC units. For its price it will pay for itself in just a few months. The only CON is that when you first install it there will be a few hours where it will take time to heat or cool the house. Other than this it is the ideal smart AC unit.

    I just got my nest a few days ago and I'm already saving money. The Nest reads temperatures correctly and my unit doesn't cut on nearly as much. I can't wait to see my electric bill after having this in for a month.

    I love this product. Of all my smart devices, this has to be my favorite. I can control the temperature from my phone which makes it really easy. I also like how I can set up a schedule so that I don't heat or cool my house when no one is home. The technology will keep tabs of when people are home and when they are away and will adjust the temperature as needed. Have been able to save money with this energy efficient product.

    Rebates make it a MUST HAVE!

    When the Nest first hit the market I was put off by the price. I was also skeptical if another "internet sensation" would have any longevity. I didn't want to be on the bleeding edge only to be burned if/when the company faltered. But Nest has stood the test of time and remained. So when I had some RZ certs to use I combined that savings with the $100.00 rebate from ComEd to feel a lot better about the price. The Nest has shown to be easy to setup and operate. The instructions were clear, with additional information on their website that is very thorough. They also have installation videos for the more visual learners. They have a network of professional installers available if you really don't want to DIY. But for my situation, I found that the most difficult part of the installation was removing my old thermostat. The instructions are clear and easy to follow, everything is well labeled and the whole job took me about 30 minutes. It's very nice that Nest includes the additional mounting bracket for those rare installations that would require it. But even better was the trim plate since my old thermostat was a bigger, rectangular model that had been painted around. The trim plate covered it up and made it a professional looking job. While I like and appreciate the inclusion of the trim plate, I would like it more if there were other finish options available. But this is a very minor issue. It just plain looks good on the wall. I did have one momentary hiccup on the setup. On the first attempt it could not connect to my WIFI. I know the user/pass was corrected, it just took forever and then gave an error. I tried it a second time and it connected right away and has remained active for months. So if at first it doesn't connect, just wait a minute and try it again. I have the savings features enabled. So it's set to start cooling down about the time I leave work. But if I have to work late and it doesn't detect anyone home, it will stay in the upper setting until I arrive home. Better still, I can always launch the app on my phone and tell Nest to start the cooling before I leave work. I loved this feature so much about my car, now I have it IN MY HOME!!!

    We are loving our new thermostat. Installed quickly and easily. It's easy to program via the app in our phone and also "learns" our routine if we make adjustments. I like that I can change the temperature remotely from my phone and through my Echo. Definitely worth the money as I think it will be saving us money in the long run by reducing our energy use.

    Very happy with this purchase. It helps remind me when to change filters at regular intervals so that one doesn't sit in the system for a year, o get the reminders directly on phones. Twice this has greatly helped me to see that the AC was broken while away on vacation while dog was in home in the summer. Was able to let my dog watcher know so they could come put in a window unit to keep my malamute (like a husky) from over heating. Has also helped us save money every month with Eco mode where system adjusts temp while you're away to save money. You don't even notice though because it knows when you're headed home and kicks the temp back to your personal settings making it comfortable before you get back home.

    Works amazingly, very smart and definitely worth the money. Even though you can program a base temperature and a create a schedule, the feature we love the most is the ability to adjust the temp from our phones because the home we just purchased has not 1, but 3 thermostats (one on each floor). We are constantly moving round/going to bed at different times, so its hard to 'create a schedule' for when we'll be on different floors. So it's been a huge help to have a 'base temp' and then adjust if when we know we'll be in a section of the house. The other thing I love is that Nest Thermostat has a safety protocol in it, where if the house falls below a certain temperature (40 Degrees) the heat will kick on automatically, even if you have the thermostat set to "Off". I live in Massachusetts where during the spring and fall the temperature fluctuates greatly, could be 70 during the day, but 30's at night. Its a good piece of mind that if the temp changes when we are not home, the heat will kick on before the pipes freeze.

    I love my Nest Themostat! Since having it installed (unless you're familiar with your HVAC system, I advise you have it done professionally). I have saved a significant amount of money every last two electric bills. I also love that face that my provider allows for a rebate for purchasing a smart device. Being able to adjust my home's temperature from anywhere has been a life saver, being as though I often forget to turn it off. Two months in I now what to tackle the thermostat's Eco feature. I really advise everyone take the leap!

    This not only allows me to control temperature without getting up (by using phone/tablet app or Google Assistant through various devices) - but it saves me money by raising temp when I'm not home. I can't live without a Nest thermostat anymore.

    I love nest and I love this product specifically! I used to keep the temperature at the same temperature no matter if I was away or at home because I didn't want to come home to an apartment that was not at the temperature I like. Now I can change the temperature when I leave and then set it back to what I like on my way home from my phone so I can save money and still always come home to an apartment at just the temperature I like!
