If you have recently bought a Nest thermostat from Carrier, it may seem foreign at first use. With this thermostat, you’ve got plenty of useful and handy features to play with. Unlike other types, Nest thermostats have intelligent capacities designed for convenience, comfort, and energy efficiency.
Learn to use your nest thermostat to its full potential with these expert tips.
Energy Preservation and Temperature Safety
Nest thermostats have three (3) built-in features that protect your home and conserve energy.
1. Eco Mode
When you select the eco-mode setting, your home will cool or heat at the most energy-efficient temperature. A green leaf appears on the thermostat once it’s set to eco mode.
2. Safety Temperatures
Nest thermostats come with safety temperature features that overrule the settings and schedules to protect your home from severe cold and heat. Even when you set the thermostat to “OFF,” it will still keep your home cool or warm within the safe temperature set.
3. Home/Away Assist
Once the thermostat sensed that you’re away from home, the setting will automatically change to eco mode. Home/Away Assist can detect when you’ve been gone from home through your thermostat’s activity sensors and phone’s location. Therefore, you won’t be wasting any amount of energy even when you forgot to adjust or turn off your thermostat before leaving home.
Nest thermostats can learn your temperature schedules and recall them every time you make changes in the temperature. It creates a basic and reliable schedule of your temperature desires.
Nest Mobile App
The best thing about having a nest thermostat is its nest mobile app. While the thermostat is connected to the WIFI, you can control the temperature wherever you are using the app. However, not all settings can be adjusted using the app. Other necessary settings need to be modified on the thermostat itself.
Thermostat Voice Control
It is a lot more convenient knowing that you can control your Nest thermostat with a voice command. You can make adjustments to the settings by allowing the device to recognize your voice.
Is your thermostat located near the windows? If yes, you may turn on the Sunblock feature to allow the thermostat to give correct readings of the temperature. This feature offers great savings on your energy bills, as your HVAC system won’t be overworked due to incorrect thermostat readings.
