Most people leave the house at one temperature and forget to change it. So the Nest Learning Thermostat learns your schedule, programs itself and can be controlled from your phone. Teach it well and the Nest Thermostat can lower your heating and cooling bills up to 20%. We’re happy to be a Chattanooga Nest thermostat installation company, and we recommend them as a great option for convenient, home comfort.
Instead of needing to be programmed, Nest learns from you how to save energy. Teach it wisely during its first week in your home and Nest will remember to save energy, even if you forget. Just follow these tips to maximize your savings.
Set your “Away” temperature thoughtfully. Nest’s Auto-Away and manual Away mode will both turn off your system until your home reaches a minimum temperature that you choose during setup. The lower your Away temperature is, the more you’ll save. Just keep in mind the needs of pets and plants before you set it too low.
Turn the temperature down at night. You’re keeping warm under a thick blanket tonight, so turn the temperature down to save energy while you sleep. After a couple nights, Nest will learn this habit and start doing it for you.
Remember that turning the temperature up all the way doesn’t heat your home faster. Cranking the thermostat to 85° doesn’t make the air come out of the vent any hotter, it just runs your heater longer. Use Nest’s Time to Temperature to get a sense of how high or low to set your temp. You may not know if you want it to be 72° or 74°, but it’s easy to see the difference between running the heat for 15 minutes versus an hour.
Watch for the Leaf and check your Energy History. The Nest Leaf appears when you turn Nest to a temperature that saves you energy. The more often you see a Leaf, the more you save. Nest tracks your energy use over time in Energy History, so you can see how much you save.

From the first days of Nest, there was no question that this thermostat would be controlled remotely by laptop, smartphone and tab. Both the Nest Account and Nest Mobile app are free. The Nest Account allows you to control and adjust your Nest Learning Thermostat over the Internet, and the app gives you access to your Nest Account on a mobile device.
Here’s some of what you can do right now:
Changing the temperature or schedule remotely is just like making a change directly on your thermostat. So when you turn up the temperature on your phone it’ll affect Nest’s learning and schedule, and that info will show up on your Nest at home. The Nest Mobile app is currently available for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. We’ll be rolling out an app to the Android market in December and are planning a series of updates in the coming months.
