Searching for the perfect last minute Christmas gift?
Search no further, for the answer is Nest.
No, we don’t mean a bird’s nest, nor a nest egg, but the next-generation programmable thermostat. It’s the next big thing, listen here: This isn’t just any thermostat. This is a thermostat you can control from anywhere; this is a thermostat that senses patterns and adjusts itself based the information gathered.
Nest is a thermostat designed to help save energy, and money.
If you’re anybody who’s anybody, you’ve done it. You’ve left the house, only to get halfway to work and realize that you left the heat on full blast. Your energy bill may skyrocket, but hey, at least the cats will be happy. When you heat your home with Nest, you’ll never have to worry about that again.
Nest takes just 30 minutes to install, and off in a flash, the Nest programmable thermostat begins recording details: What temperatures you like; when everyone is home; when everyone is out; during which times of day you adjust the easy-to-read dial up or down. After a few days at home with your family, getting to know your family, Nest practically programs itself.
And on those hectic days, Nest’s Auto-Away feature rushes in to the rescue. Nest comes equipped with an Auto-Away feature that can sense when your home is empty, and will automatically adjusts to an energy efficient temperature.
Nest wants you to live green.
An old, inefficient, unprogrammable thermostat can increase your heating and cooling bill by up to 20 percent. Twenty percent, people. If you’re anybody who’s anybody, you can come up with better ways to spend that extra 40 bucks a month.
Here’s where Nest rushes in once more. The Nest Leaf™ appears when you’ve saving energy, and will guide you in the direction of a more energy efficient home. Did you know that adjusting the temperature just one degree can eliminate as much as five percent of energy wasted?
Nest makes it easy to keep in touch.
This is Eastern North Carolina, so I know it’s a long shot, but play along: Say there’s been a massive freak snowstorm that left your car stranded on the side of Highway 264. You’ve walked five miles in the blowing wind, and you’re finally in the home stretch. The last thing you want to do is walk into a frigid house, and with Nest, you don’t have to. The Nest app (available for Apple and Android devices) lets you change the temperature of your home with a simple tap, even when you’re miles from home.
Get one for cousin Jerry, and one for Uncle Lou, and while you’re at it, get one for yourself, too.
