Few things divide family members quite like dialing in the ideal temperature. One may crank the heat until the rest of the family is sweating, while another might dial it back until everyone is huddling under blankets. This is not just a recipe for disagreement — and discomfort — but also a headache for parents concerned about the electric bill.
The Nest Learning Thermostat, 3rd Generation, is a smart thermostat that helps regulate the energy usage in your home — based on your family’s patterns — to help save money while keeping the house at the perfect temperature.
Here are 5 ways this smart thermostat helps families keep the peace:
1. Painless installation: Most parents don’t have a spare hour or two to spend installing a thermostat. CNET says that the 3rd generation of the Nest Learning Thermostat is by far the easiest model its staff has ever installed. With just a screwdriver, level and baseplate, parents can quickly get the thermostat up and running.
2. Auto-scheduling: By learning your family’s patterns — what time everyone is out of the house for work and school in the morning, your temperature preferences, how drafty your home is — the Nest’s auto-schedule feature adjusts to be as energy-efficient as possible. You can easily change the schedule if your patterns and needs change.
