We didn't think thermostats mattered either.
Until we learned they control about 50% of our home's energy bill. That's as much as the refrigerator, lighting, TVs, stereos and computers combined.
Traditional thermostats tend to waste a lot of energy, mainly heating and cooling your home when no one's there.
We designed Nest to learn from you. As a result, 99% of Nests have schedules that work with your life. And when life doesn't go according to schedule, Nest can help:
- Forgot to turn down the thermostat before you left the house? Auto-Away will automatically do it for you.
- Dreading the summer heat? Airwave keeps you just as comfortable but runs your AC up to 30% less.
- Coming home early from a weekend away? Use your phone to adjust the temp on your way.
You'll spend on average $30,000 heating and cooling your home over the 20-year life of your system. In that time, the Nest Learning Thermostat, which takes 30 minutes to install and programs itself in a week, can save you $6,000.
Let's stop wasting energy.
That beige box on your wall controls about half your energy bill, but huge amounts of that are wasted heating and cooling empty homes. Programmable thermostats were supposed to help, but only 11% of people program them. They're too complicated.
So we made Nest simple: turn it up, turn it down. Nest will remember what you like and help you save energy.
Living with Nest.
Day 1: We've made installation easy. Even if you've never even considered installing a thermostat. If you're comfortable installing a light fixture, you can install Nest yourself. Most people install Nest in 30 minutes or less. Or, a professional can help.
Day 2: Learning starts once Nest is up and running. Turn it up when you're home, turn it down when you leave and in a few days Nest will have learned your schedule.
Day 6: Life doesn't always go according to schedule, so Auto-Away kicks in when you leave home unexpectedly. Energy History shows you how much energy you've used daily.
Day 7: The Nest Leaf appears when you're saving energy. Changing the temperature just one degree can save you up to 5%. The Leaf guides you in the right direction.
Day 8: By now, Nest has made a schedule for your home. One-off temperature changes won't confuse it, but change the temperature a few days in a row and Nest will catch on and adjust its schedule. When you teach Nest well, you can save up to 20% on your heating or cooling bill.
Day 90: Now that summer's here, it's time to switch from heating to cooling. Nest will start building a new schedule, just like it did in your first week. As you turn on cooling, Nest's Airwave technology can cut your AC runtime up to 30%.
Day 365: Teach Nest well and it'll not only pay for itself, but continue saving year after year.
Control your Nest Learning Thermostat from anywhere.
Control your home's temperature from your laptop, smartphone or tablet when you connect Nest to Wi-Fi. You'll be able to see and adjust your schedule, change the temperature and check energy history from anywhere. Plus, Nest's software will automatically update.
Keep track of how much energy you use in Energy History and get a monthly email summary of how your energy use is changing with the Nest Energy Report.
Nest is secure, private, and reliable. Its security features include HTTPS, SSL and 128-bit encryption.
Programs itself. Saves energy.
Nest is the first thermostat that learns from you. Teach it well to stay comfortable at home and save energy when you're away.
Programmable thermostats are frustrating to program, so most people don't or they create schedules that don't match their lives. Nest automatically programs itself in about a week. It creates a personalized schedule based on the temperature changes you've made and continually adapts to your life.
Airwave automatically turns off the AC a few minutes early, but keeps the fan running. Nest's humidity sensor activates Airwave. When indoor humidity is low, Airwave can cut your AC's runtime up to 30%.
Want to know if you're saving energy when you change the temp? The Nest Leaf appears when you turn Nest to a temperature that's energy efficient. It guides you in the right direction. A 1-degree change can save you up to 5% on your energy use.
Nest's activity sensors have a 150 degree wide-angle view, so that it works in most locations. About two hours after you've left the house, Nest will sense you've gone and automatically adjust the temperature to avoid heating or cooling an empty home.
Energy History shows you how your energy use changes on a daily basis. Check Energy History to see how much energy you save and why— your adjustments, Away, or the weather.
Time to Temperature
Turning the temperature up higher doesn't heat the house any faster, so Nest helps you save by showing you how long it'll really take to reach the temperature you want. Nest has three temperature sensors to track your home's heating and cooling.

If you're comfortable installing a light fixture, you can install Nest yourself. Three out of four people install Nest in 30 minutes or less.
