I replaced my old programmable Honeywell thermostat with the Nest thermostat. Getting it connected was a little bit of pain (and I consider myself a techie) but it was well worth the initial frustration. At first the Nest thermostat seemed just like a normal thermostat but as time went on, I realized that it was much more than that.
What it does above and beyond the call of a normal thermostat
- Remember settings based upon your previous settings
- Use GPS to tell when you are home and turn on accordingly
- Send you an end of month electricity report that will allow you to see how you compare to others in your area
- Allow you to adjust your thermostat while you are away
