In November of 2011, I did a post on Nest. I know a lot of people that have put Nest to use in their homes and love it. It keeps the homeowner from having to program a thermostat or remember to turn it up or down before you leave the house or go to sleep each night. A quick read of some forums leads me to believe that the average consumer saves $10-$30 a month when using Nest. So the savings can certainly add up over time.
If all this leaves you wanting an alternative smart thermostat, Honeywell has an option for you.
Here is an article from USA Today with more information on the Google and Nest. What do you think about smart thermostats? Does Google’s purchase of Nest make you worry about the data being gathered about you?
