we heart home

For us, home isn’t just an address where we raise our families. It’s the world we inhabit, and it’s our only one.

For us, home isn’t just an address where we raise our families. It’s the world we inhabit, and it’s our only one.

As the late Carl Sagan noted in his book Pale Blue Dot, “On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives."

So it’s up to us to take care of Earth, for all the generations to come.

That’s why we made the Nest Learning Thermostat in the first place – to help people save energy. And to do our part to help our only home.

When we were researching thermostats, we were surprised to learn that they control half of a home’s energy bill. So a thermostat’s potential impact is enormous. Since its launch in 2011, the Nest Thermostat has saved over 12 billion kWh of energy. That’s enough to power New York City for 81 days.

That’s pretty impressive, but we know we can do better. We have to do better. The future of this place we call home depends on finding ways to save more energy and reduce carbon emissions.

In honor of Earth Day, we want to help more people save energy with a Nest Thermostat.

Reversing decades of global warming is a huge challenge. But we believe that together, we can change climate change.

Energy savings are an estimate, not a guarantee that any individual user will save energy.
