It is amazing to think that not that long ago, a mere four to five years ago, that beige little box on the wall was not even thought about. The only thoughts that it seemed to provoke was of how aesthetically unpleasing, annoying and complicated it really was. Nowadays, people generally love their thermostats, millions of homes the world over have a Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation placed on their walls.
About the Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation
One of the biggest hopes with this thermostat was that things would change, big things such as the way energy was consumed by the general public. It seems that more aware people become of the amount of energy being used, the more they find ways to lower their consumption.
There is actual proof that the Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation actually does help people to save on their energy. As of 2011, over four billion kWh of energy in million of homes the world over, have been saved. There have been independent studies which that people were able to save an average of ten to twelve per cent on their heating bills and around fifteen percent was saved on their cooling bills. This means that in only two years, maybe even less, the Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation can pay for itself, things only keep getting better, what is not to love about that?
The Nest Learning Thermostat 3rd Generation is sleeker, thinner and more beautiful than its precursor. There is now something new that is being offered by the Nest Learning Thermostat, this is being called Farsight. When someone enters the room, Farsight will light up and show the time or temperature which have been set. The clock face can be either analog or digital, your choice, it’s big and bright enough to be seen from across the room.
Since it contains more temperature sensors, it is a lot more accurate, it is great at learning all about your home. It becomes familiar with the way it cools and heats, how drafty it can be, etc. and is therefore able to adjust accordingly.
If your furnace is not functioning properly, your Nest Thermostat will inform you. Generally heating as well as forced air furnaces have a shutoff that is automatic preventing overheating. Your Nest Thermostat will always be on the lookout for certain shut off patterns which are indicators of a recurring `problem with your furnace. If something is not normal, every time you are using the heating, you will receive a “Furnace Heads-Up” message on your thermostat screen as well as your tablet or phone. Your monthly Home Report will also contain a notification on this matter.
As with every Nest product, with the use of software updates and technological advancements we predict that the Nest Thermostat will only continue to get better and find even more ways to make things more accommodating and thoughtful. This will make your home a more comfortable, accommodating and thoughtful place to live.
