Nowadays, it seems like there’s an app for everything. While there actually isn’t an app for everything, you do have a variety of apps to choose from when it comes to making your home comfortable.

At Nelson Comfort, we’re proud to offer a selection of Google Nest products to give you even more control over what happens at home when you’re not there. Still on the fence? Consider some of the benefits of having a smart thermostat installed in your Cincinnati or Northern Kentucky area home.

Benefits of Installing a Smart Thermostat

Can Adjust Anywhere

The best thing about smart devices is that they can be used anywhere and everywhere. Pretend you’re on vacation. Thermostats should be set to about 85 degrees when you’re on vacation unless you have pets at home.

Imagine you’re relaxing on the beach when you suddenly realize your thermostat is set for a lower temperature. Instead of worrying, you log in to your device and automatically adjust the home’s temperature. After you do this, you sit back and continue enjoying your vacation. But if you didn’t have a smart thermostat, you’d have to have a neighbor check on things or spend the rest of your vacation fretting about the temperature in your home.

The point is, with a smart thermostat, you can adjust the thermostat from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop from literally anywhere in the world where there’s access to Wi-Fi.

Smart Technology

Smart thermostats work with built-in technology that allows them to learn your desired temperature settings over time and adjust them accordingly. This creates energy savings while you’re away from home or asleep. Geofencing allows your smart thermostat to know when you’re away from home and that an adjustment can be made.

Minimize Energy Costs

You want to save money. That’s a given. With smart thermostats, they do just that. A smart thermostat can give you and your family tips on the best way to save money while also showcasing money-saving opportunities. Many of them show you the areas where your energy usage is at its highest. By learning what your energy habits are, you can see if there are ways to save money.

Easy to Install

Google Nest products are incredibly easy to install. We can install them for you, or you can do it on your own. However, we highly recommend contacting a professional heating and cooling company to perform the installation services to ensure the thermostat is installed correctly. Whether you have one of our technicians install the smart thermostat or you do it yourself, though, you know you’re getting a good deal.

Email Alerts

Some of the smart thermostats will send you an email if something is wrong. This can range from a temperature change to a disconnection from the network. By getting the emails, you’ll know something is wrong as soon as it happens. With that, it makes it easier to get someone to come out to your house to make sure things are okay. And remember, with the HVAC system experts at Nelson Comfort, we have 24/7 emergency services to help you if you’re in a bind.

Design Options

The NEST thermostat is beautifully designed. It can be stainless steel, white, black, and many other colors to match the specific design of your home. Along with that, you can choose from the high-res color display, whether you want the temperature, time, or weather to be shown on your device.
