Nest Thermostat


For many years homeowners have desired to be able to control their home heating systems remotely and the only way to do so was through a home security system. Now there is The Nest-a thermostat developed by Tony Fadell who designed the hardware for the ipod. It can be controlled remotely via the internet with a pc, smart phone or tablet.

The Nest is a simple but effective device that makes saving energy easy.  It is reasonably afforadable retailing at about $200.  A properly programmed thermostat can save up to 20% of the energy consumed to heat and cool a building. Many programmable thermostats never get properly set because they are complicated to program. The Nest is a thermostat that creates and builds a program by remembering the way the user sets temperature.

The Nest is a great example of  a simple smart technology that can be used in buildings to reduce energy consumption and improve the quality of the inhabitant’s existence. It is just a matter of time before this type of thermostat becomes required by code. But why wait?  It has many benefits and gets great reviews.
