Whether you like it or not, frigid winter weather is here, which means now is the time for winterizing your home. As a homeowner, you’ve probably been spending some time preparing your home to withstand the drops in temperature. Your doors are insulated, the windows sealed tight, and you probably even installed those handy little inserts into your electrical outlets. Kudos to you! You’ve done your job to keep out the winter gusts–but have you covered all of your bases?
While you have been thinking about keeping outside breezes from entering your home, the air that is already freely flowing inside your home is going unchecked. Sure, you try to remember to lower the temperature on your thermostat each night before bed and fully intend to do it again as you leave the house for work, but, as we all know, sometimes life gets busy and we simply forget.
How wonderful would it be to put your thermostat on auto-pilot? To know that your home energy usage is efficient without you having to lift a finger? Meet Nest Thermostat.
