What makes a thermostat a NEST Thermostat?

When was the last time you upgraded your thermostat? Probably quite a while ago, huh? If so, you’re not alone. Most people don’t upgrade their thermostats nearly as often as they should. This wastes quite a bit of money in the long run, making your home less efficient and less comfortable. Upgrading your thermostat actually has a huge impact on the efficiency of your air conditioning and heating systems. It’s important that you have a look at all the options available for new thermostats, so that you can find the one that’s best for you. Total Comfort, Inc. Now installs and services Nest thermostats throughout Corona, CA. If you’d like more info, or need to schedule an appointment, call today to speak to one of our experts.

WHY YOU SHOULD UPGRADE YOUR THERMOSTAT

 

People tend to be pretty on top of replacing their climate control systems when they wear out, which is usually every 10 to 15 years or so. However, far fewer people are diligent about replacing their thermostats. Thermostats tend to get replaced only when they stop working completely, which could be upwards of 20 years! Over time, your thermostat will wear down as it accumulates wear and tear. The dead zone, that area where your thermostat should activate but doesn’t, will widen over time as the system wears out. Your climate control system will activate less often than it should, making your home less comfortable. This is why you should upgrade your thermostat at least as often as your climate control system.

WHAT IS A NEST THERMOSTAT?

The Nest Learning Thermostat is the first thermostat to get Energy Star Certified. It learns what temperature you like and builds a schedule around yours. Since 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved billions of kWh of energy in millions of homes worldwide. And Independent studies showed that it saved people an average of 10% to 12% on heating bills and 15%on cooling cost. Which in under two years, it can pay for itself.

A Nest thermostat is a brand of wireless, that also offers additional satellite sensors. Most homes aren’t the same temperature in every room. Maybe the master bedroom gets too warm or the Living room gets too cold. With the Nest Temperature sensor, you can let your Nest thermostat create the perfect level of comfortability throughout the entire home.
