E is for Everyone.

When​ ​we​ ​started​ ​Nest,​ ​we​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​help​ ​the​ ​world​ ​save​ ​energy​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Learning Thermostat.​

When​ ​we​ ​started​ ​Nest,​ ​we​ ​wanted​ ​to​ ​help​ ​the​ ​world​ ​save​ ​energy​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Learning Thermostat.​ ​Since​ ​then,​ ​Nest​ ​customers​ ​have​ ​saved​ ​more​ ​than​ ​14​ ​billion​ ​kilowatt-hours​ ​of energy​ ​–​ ​enough​ ​to​ ​power​ ​San​ ​Francisco​ ​for​ ​more​ ​than​ ​two​ ​years.

But​ ​what​ ​if​ ​we​ ​could​ ​make​ ​these​ ​energy​ ​savings​ ​available​ ​to​ ​more​ ​homes​ ​and​ ​more​ ​people?

So​ ​we​ ​set​ ​out​ ​to​ ​create​ ​a​ ​simpler,​ ​more​ ​affordable​ ​thermostat.​ ​One​ ​with​ ​the​ ​same​ ​energy-saving features​ ​people​ ​have​ ​come​ ​to​ ​expect​ ​from​ ​a​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat.​ ​But​ ​with​ ​a​ ​friendlier,​ ​streamlined design​ ​that​ ​fits​ ​into​ ​any​ ​home.

Meet​ ​the​ ​easy-to-use,​ ​energy-efficient,​ ​control-it-from-everywhere​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E.​ ​It’s​ ​for everyone.

Easy​ ​on​ ​the​ ​eyes

Instead​ ​of​ ​a​ ​bold​ ​design​ ​piece​ ​for​ ​your​ ​wall,​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​and​ ​its​ ​frosted​ ​display quietly​ ​blend​ ​into​ ​your​ ​home.​ ​This​ ​new​ ​display​ ​diffuses​ ​the​ ​light​ ​from​ ​the​ ​screen,​ ​so​ ​you​ ​see softly​ ​glowing​ ​text​ ​and​ ​graphics​ ​–​ ​along​ ​with​ ​a​ ​simplified​ ​interface​ ​–​ ​that​ ​are​ ​easy​ ​to​ ​read.​ ​And when​ ​it’s​ ​off,​ ​the​ ​frosted​ ​display​ ​takes​ ​on​ ​a​ ​glacier-gray​ ​color​ ​and​ ​fades​ ​into​ ​the​ ​background.

The​ ​ring’s​ ​finish​ ​feels​ ​like​ ​ceramic,​ ​but​ ​it’s​ ​made​ ​out​ ​of​ ​high-end​ ​polycarbonate.​ ​So​ ​it's​ ​durable enough​ ​to​ ​last.

E is for Everyone

Energy​ ​efficient

The​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​puts​ ​proven​ ​energy-saving​ ​features​ ​front​ ​and​ ​center.​ ​It’s​ ​ENERGY​ ​STAR​ certified,​ ​and​ ​it​ ​comes​ ​with​ ​a​ ​simple​ ​schedule​ ​so​ ​you​ ​can​ ​begin​ ​saving​ ​energy​ ​right​ ​out​ ​of​ ​the box.​ ​Like​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Learning​ ​Thermostat,​ ​it​ ​turns​ ​itself​ ​down​ ​when​ ​you’re​ ​away,​ ​so​ ​you​ ​don’t waste​ ​energy​ ​heating​ ​or​ ​cooling​ ​an​ ​empty​ ​home.​ ​You​ ​can​ ​control​ ​it​ ​from​ ​anywhere​ ​with​ ​the​ ​Nest app.​ ​Based​ ​on​ ​typical​ ​energy​ ​costs,​ ​we've​ ​estimated​ ​average​ ​savings​ ​of​ ​$131​ ​to​ ​$145​ ​a​ ​year, which​ ​is​ ​great​ ​for​ ​a​ ​thermostat​ ​with​ ​a​ ​suggested​ ​retail​ ​price​ ​of​ ​$169.*

More​ ​than​ ​half​ ​of​ ​U.S.​ ​households​ may be ​eligible​ ​for​ ​a​ ​rebate​ ​from​ ​one​ ​of​ ​our​ ​energy​ ​partners,​ ​so Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​can​ ​pay​ ​for​ ​itself​ ​even​ ​faster.​ ​Check​ ​our​ ​​rebate​ ​page​​ ​to​ ​see​ ​what’s​ ​available in​ ​your​ ​area.

The​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​looks​ ​very​ ​different​ ​from​ ​any​ ​thermostat​ ​we’ve​ ​made​ ​before.​ ​But​ ​what hasn’t​ ​changed​ ​are​ ​the​ ​core​ ​features​ ​that​ ​define​ ​a​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​–​ ​simplicity,​ ​energy​ ​savings and​ ​remote​ ​control.​ ​Now​ ​there’s​ ​a​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​that​ ​can​ ​fit​ ​into​ ​any​ ​home.

* Independent​ ​studies​ ​showed​ ​that​ ​Nest​ ​saved​ ​people​ ​an​ ​average​ ​of​ ​10%​ ​to​ ​12%​ ​on​ ​heating​ ​and 15%​ ​on​ ​cooling.​ ​Based​ ​on​ ​typical​ ​energy​ ​costs,​ ​we've​ ​estimated​ ​average​ ​savings​ ​of​ ​$131​ ​to $145​ ​a​ ​year.​ ​That​ ​means​ ​the​ ​Nest​ ​Thermostat​ ​E​ ​can​ ​pay​ ​for​ ​itself​ ​in​ ​under​ ​two​ ​years.​ ​Individual savings​ ​are​ ​not​ ​guaranteed.
