Step 4 Energy Usage Modification

Energy Usage Modification With The Nest

Thanks to our energy-saving solutions, you can cut your energy costs and keep your power consumption under control. By effectively addressing the three mechanisms of heat transfer — conduction, convection, and radiation — our attic insulation systems significantly inhibit heat loss or heat gain in your home, allowing it to become healthier, more comfortable, and more efficient in the use of energy.

We didn’t think thermostats mattered either.

Until we found out they control half of your home’s energy. That’s more than appliances, lighting, TVs, computers and stereos combined.

The Nest Programs Itself, So You Don't Have To

House ThermostatIn the past, the best way to save energy at home was with a programmable thermostat—and a small minority swore by their programmed schedules. For these people, programming Nest is simple.

But the Nest Learning Thermostat was made for the other 90% of us who rarely or never program our thermostats. Instead of needing to be programmed, Nest learns from you how to save energy. Teach it wisely during its first week in your home and Nest will remember to save energy, even if you forget. Just follow these tips to maximize your savings.

With Time-to-Temperature, the Nest Learning Thermostat displays how long it will take for your home to reach the temperature you choose, so you won’t be tempted to set it too far.

Use Time-to-Temperature to help you save energy. Cranking the heat up to 90ºF/32ºC won’t make your home heat up any faster, but could waste energy if you don’t remember to turn it down. The longer you are heating or cooling your home, the more energy you’re using. Just choose a comfortable target temperature and the Nest Learning Thermostat will tell you how long it will take to get there.

The Nest Leaf Helps you Save Money

The Nest Leaf was designed to be simple: quick feedback when you do something that saves energy. It’s there to guide you towards efficient temperatures and reward you when you get there.

But it’s also a bit of a game, and people have been asking about the rules. Everyone wants more Leafs, others simply want to know why they got a leaf today, but not yesterday. Learn more about the Nest Leaf.

Teach Nest to save.

Programming thermostats is complicated and irritating - but an un-programmed thermostat can waste 20% of your heating and cooling bill. So the Nest Thermostat programs itself.

Just turn it up and turn it down. The Nest Thermostat learns what temperatures you like and builds a personalized schedule. Teach it efficient temperatures for a few days and, within a week, it'll start setting them on its own.

Save while you’re away.

With Auto-Away™, the Nest Thermostat automatically turns to an energy-efficient Away temperature when you’re gone.

Auto-Away works in 90% of homes, even if your Nest is in a spot you don't pass on your way out the door.

Nest on the go.

Use the Nest app to connect to your thermostat from a phone. Getting in early? Change the temperature miles from home.
