Nest - The expensive thermostat

Here is another sweet tech tool to increase home energy efficiency.  It is elegant and pretty powerful.  I really like this one, but the $249 price tag is hard to swallow.

  1. I like how you can control it from an app on your iPhone! I wonder if there is an annual or monthly charge for that feature?

  2. I do not believe they charge for that and it connect through your WIFI connection at home. They also make an Android app for it as well.

  3. I looked into this months ago. I plan to get one eventually. Although the price is high (considering other "programmable" options) it makes sense. You spend money on all this energy efficient furnace and energy star stuff and then control it all with a $20 blob of plastic on the wall. The guy who designed it use to design for Apple, which explains the techy cool feeling.

    1. Let me know if you get one. Would like to hear how it works out for you.

  4. I'm tempted to put these in after we close, however I'm guessing I need 2 with the 2 zone HVAC we have in our design.
