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.
