When it comes to thermostats, the Nest Learning Thermostat has successful stole the show. Energy efficiency, sleek design, and Wi-Fi capability are all features the creators of the Nest have incorporated into this state of the art piece of equipment for your HVAC system. The Nest is able to learn your daily routine and program itself to save energy, while keeping you comfortable at the same time. The men behind this thermostat, former Apple employees who worked on the iPod, incorporated this learning capability with the ability to remotely monitor the Nest via your smart phone or tablet computer, ensuring complete control over your system. If you are looking for ultimate energy savings and complete comfort, the Nest Learning Thermostat would be a perfect fit for your home.
Features of the Nest Learning Thermostat
Auto-away – The Nest Learning Thermostat's "auto-away" feature automatically detects non-occupancy, whether it lasts for several hours or multiple days (ie. a vacation). The auto-away feature uses algorithms that interpret occupancy sensor data to determine whether or not you are away from your home. When the confidence level is high that you are not at your home, the auto-away feature makes the decision to override the current thermostat setting and save additional energy. During relatively short periods of non-occupancy, the setpoint is set to a temperature where substantial efficiency gains can be realized.
Schedule and Setpoint Learning – The Nest Learning Thermostat automatically learns your preffered temperature settings in the home along with your daily schedule. The learning algorithm the thermostat uses is based on your manual temperature selections. Through this automatic learning algorithm, the thermostat memorizes a setback schedule, greatly benefiting you when it comes to saving energy. Less energy means less money on utility bills! The learning algorithm is designed to save a homeowner money, while not impacting your comfort.
The Nest Leaf – Another way that the Nest Learning Thermostat encourages users to select efficient temperatures is the display of a green leaf icon known as the "Nest Leaf." The Nest Leaf is displayed on the screen when you select an energy efficient temperature setting. The Nest Leaf will appear at different temperature settings in different households, based on (1) the calculated efficiency of the household, (2) the HVAC system model, and (3) your prior behavior.
Time to Target Temperature – Another feature of the Nest Learning Thermostat is called "time to temperature." The time to temperature feature calculates and displays, in real-time, an estimation of how long it will take to reach a particular temperature setpoint. Many homeowners will use an exaggerated temperature setting in an attempt to heat or cool the home more quickly. This behavior is both ineffective and inefficient. The time to temperature feature shows you that an exaggerated setpoint takes much longer to achieve, which discourages this wasteful behavior. By providing real-time information when selecting temperatures, you become more familiar with your heating and cooling system, which leads to money saved on energy bills!
