You’ve probably read about Nest by now, but if you haven’t, check them out. It’s not everyday something so ordinary and taken for granted gets an intuitive, well-designed and urgently needed overhaul (even though nobody really realized the need for it). Nest tells us that our thermostats control up to 50% of our energy bill, so why have we waited so long? Check out more about why they made it.
The Nest is a “learning thermostat,” designed to be easy to use and save money by programming itself, letting you manage it from the cloud, and giving you tons of info and feedback to help you learn how to save even more. It’s good for the planet, and it’s good for your wallet. And it’s great design. Win-win-win.
We bought one for the office, and are excited to see how/if it transforms our energy usage. Watch for updates!
