As artificial intelligence finds its way into more of our lives, we enjoy “smart” products like the Nest thermostat. A division of Google, Nest products are responsive and Wi-Fi-enabled. Rick Osterloh, Google’s Senior Vice President of Hardware, said earlier this year, “All of Google’s investments in machine learning and AI, they can very clearly benefit Nest products. It just makes sense to be developing them together.”

Let’s review how this thermostat technology benefits you as a homeowner in the Greater Cincinnati region…

Why is the Nest Thermostat So Popular?

Nest technology is a prominent face of user-friendly home automation and energy efficiency. Considered a “smart” thermostat, it “learns” your household occupancy and rhythms adapts. It’s not as Orwellian as it sounds.

The products require you to program them manually and make adjustments for about a week. After this “learning” period, the Nest thermostat responds to readings and adjusts your heating and air conditioning equipment appropriately.

Because it’s Wi-Fi-enabled, communication with your Nest thermostat is simple via an app on your smartphone or tablet. Modify settings remotely from the airport or cozy in bed.

The technology also takes more accurate readings, and it communicates seamlessly with your HVAC equipment. This is part of its reputation for AI and better energy efficiency. Because it is more responsive and adaptable, it uses less energy. Additionally, in 2017, the Nest thermostat gained ENERGY STAR certification from the EPA.

For your convenience, the Nest thermostat provides reports on daily energy use and a monthly view. This allows you to spot patterns and identify opportunities for improvement.

It also notifies you if an air filter is ready to be changed, or if there is a spike in energy use. These anomalies can alert you to a malfunction before your HVAC equipment suffers permanent damage.
