Released in 2011, the Nest learning thermostat has revolutionized home comfort. Blending the excellent facets of a programmable thermostat with “smart” learning technology and Wi-Fi capabilities enables you to keep the best temperature in your home year-round. If you still have an old thermostat in your Stafford, Texas, home, or you’re looking to upgrade, here are some great perks of the Nest.
One of the most remarkable aspects of the Nest is that it’s easy-to-use and always lets you know what it’s doing. By changing the settings, it lights up every time you walk past, allowing you to easily see the temperature and any other information. It also has a backlight that illuminates to a blueish hue when the air conditioner’s on, and an orange-red color when the heater springs into action.
Learning Your Behavior
There are a glut of smart thermostats out there, but the Nest was the first to introduce learning to the market. At its core, the Nest works much like a programmable thermostat, letting you set the temperature based on the date and time of day. However, the Nest ups the ante by learning your behavior on the fly. After a few short weeks, it changes temperatures using both the programmable settings and your usage habits.
The Nest’s Wi-Fi capability has a two-pronged purpose. The first is to allow the system to fix any bugs or update software via an internet connection. However, it’s rare that you even notice this activity. The far more important issue is the ability to change temperatures from anywhere in the world. With the Nest’s handy app, you can change the temperature with a touch. All you need is a Wi-Fi connection. This is especially useful when you forget to turn off the air on vacation, or you’re just coming home late.
With the Nest smart thermostat, you get pinpoint control, convenience, and accuracy without all the hassles. If you’re ready to step into the 21st century, enjoy excellent home comfort, and install the Nest, call the pros at Conditioned Air Mechanical HVAC Services at (281) 561-6911.
