Proof That The Nest Learning Thermostat Saves Energy
To be honest, it’s hard to prove exactly how much energy programmable thermostats save you.Most thermostat makers claim they can save up an average of 20 percent on your heating and cooling bills when used properly. That statistic is based on a comparison between a well-programmed thermostat and a thermostat that remains the same tempurature all day, every day.
Most of the time, that is not how people are using their thermostats to begin with. There is still a bit of variation occuring throughout the day and night. But their program capable thermostats never get utilizied. Often they seem too complicated to program so homeowners just choose to manually change the setting when any discomfort occurred, therefore not seeing the full potential of energy savings that programmable thermostats have to offer.
Nest is different.
Nest isn’t a programmable thermostat. It’s something entirely new: a learning thermostat. Instead of asking you to set a schedule, Nest creates one for you based on your daily routine and what temperature you like. It learns about you, it learns about your home, and it automatically adapts. That’s why 95% of Nest Learning Thermostats have personalized schedules without any confusing programming needed.
And Nest Thermostats get better over time. Thanks to automatic software updates, the Nest Thermostat you buy actually gets better at saving energy the longer you own it. In the past three years, Nest has updated more than 30 times to consistently improve and add features to save people even more money. It is constantly improving and people are taking notice.
On average the Nest Learning Thermostat saved US customers about 10-12% on their heating bills and about 15% on their cooling bills. With an estimated average savings of $131 to $145 a year, the Nest Thermostat paid for itself in less than two years.
