The Benefits of the Google Nest Smart Thermostat
It’s too complicated. It’s too costly. It’s going to take over the world in a robot uprising. Well, maybe not that last one, but the first two statements are things we hear a lot regarding programmable thermostats. Is it really too complicated and costly to make the switch to a Nest thermostat? The answer will surprise you. Here are the top five benefits of the Nest Smart Thermostat.
1. Ease of Use
The Nest Learning Thermostat will analyze your patterns of use, then automatically adjust your home settings based on these patterns.
With many programmable thermostats, setup can be a complicated process. With the Nest Learning Thermostat, technology “learns” your preferences and makes adjustments automatically.
You can connect a Nest thermostat to other smart devices, like your Google Home speaker, and control the thermostat just by using your voice.
2. Remote Access
Your day isn’t always predictable. Your mobile device allows you to make real-time adjustments to temperature settings, even when you’re away from home. Coming home early? Turn the air conditioning on and go home to a cool house. Staying out late? Turn it off until you’re on your way home.*
3. Know When You’re at Peak Efficiency
The Nest Learning Thermostat will keep your HVAC systems operating at their most efficient levels. Look for the Leaf icon on your Nest thermostat display screens. If you see it, you are in optimal energy-saving mode.
In addition, the Nest Learning Thermostat has an eco feature that adjusts settings to a more efficient mode if it senses no one is home.
4. Monitor Your Home Continuously
The Nest Learning Thermostat is always on duty, alerting you if something is wrong. Your safety is enhanced even more when you connect the Nest thermostat to smoke detectors and CO alarms, with real time alerts to hazardous conditions in your home. It’s more than just an alert; your Nest Learning Thermostat will take action to stop dangerous conditions, such as shutting off your furnace if the CO alarm sounds.**

5. Save Money on Energy Costs
Fun fact: 50% of money spent on utilities goes towards heating and cooling your home. The Nest home thermostat can save you up to 20% in those energy bills and, in some cases, even more.***
This is because a smart thermostat keeps your home’s heating and cooling systems operating at maximum efficiency. When your units are running as they should be, you save money on energy bills as well as saving the additional cost of extensive maintenance work and repairs to the systems.
No more heating or cooling an empty house when you install a Nest Learning Thermostat, and no more guessing the right temperature setting for balancing efficiency and comfort. Nest not only automatically adjusts your temperatures, the app gives you daily reports of your energy usage along with ideas for saving even more money.
***Individual savings are not guaranteed.
The Benefits of Having Your Google Nest Smart Thermostat Professionally Installed
Although you can install a Nest thermostat on your own, there are other options available. Smart thermostats, if installed improperly, can create a conflict with your HVAC system. Additionally, you may void the warranty on the device and miss out on the chance of an extended warranty that may come with installation.
Professional installation services will ensure that your new Nest thermostat is working properly and is connected with other smart devices in your home such as smoke detectors, CO alarms, and other Nest devices. They can help you set up your Google Home app and explain all the benefits of the Nest thermostat so you can get the most out of your device.
