The Nest Learning Thermostat is the first smart thermostat to receive an EPA ENERGY STAR certification. This smart thermostat uses artificial intelligence technology to learn consumer preferences and make energy-efficient decisions about heating and cooling a home. The testing showed that the system saves 10-12% in heating and 10-15% in cooling. This translates into saving for homeowners that average about $145 per year on energy costs. The thermostat currently sells for $249 at all major retailers. This means the thermostat can pay for itself in two years.
According to EPA, if everyone used an ENERGY STAR certified smart thermostat, we could save up to 56 trillion BTUs of energy and $740 million dollars per year. This would offset 13 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions. Learn more at https://nest.com
