The Nest Thermostat is now Google property – but it was not always owned by the tech giant. The Nest Thermostat was in fact created by Nest Labs, co-founded by former Apple engineers Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers.
If you are quite afraid of change, as so many of us are, you will be happy to hear that the Nest Thermostat is not too dissimilar to a traditional round-dial thermostat so will not disfigure your wall too much or look too out of place in any theme of décor.
My mum says; “every day is a learning day,” and that same ethos has been programmed into the Nest. Now, I am not saying my mother had any hand in programming this wonderful bit of technology, but one feature many people adore about the Nest is the ability for it to learn!
When programmable thermostats first came out years and years ago, everyone wanted one because they could see the money saving benefits that the programming would bring. However, they were also so flunky and chunky and confusing that no one could program them right anyway! Nor did people have the time to do it. Luckily, the Nest Thermostat very quickly learns your routine and programs the heating on your behalf – saving you plenty of time, and money!
