Nest: Look How Much Money We’re Saving You!
PC Mag, February 3, 2015
The Nest Learning Thermostat saves U.S. customers about 10 to 15 percent on heating and cooling bills, according to new reports.
Based on two independent studies and one internal one, Nest on Monday touted the positive results, revealing average savings of $131 to $145 per year.
“[W]hich means the Nest Thermostat paid for itself in under two years,” founder Matt Rogers wrote in a blog post.
Nest’s own study pulled before-and-after energy data from homeowners across America; two independently funded, designed, and evaluated studies looked at families in Oregon and Indiana.
“Nest is constantly improving,” Rogers said. “And that’s why we decided to do something no other thermostat maker has done: find out how much our thermostat saves. In real homes. For real families. Across the country.
