Your home uses lots of energy for cooling and heating, and the Nest thermostat helps you lower your power usage. It learns your family’s lifestyle, and homeowners can control settings through Wi-Fi from their smartphone, tablet, or computer. It even lights up when you walk into the same room and sends an alert to your phone if your HVAC system isn’t working properly. Register your address and email to get monthly energy use reports and see how you compare with other people in your city.
