We didn’t think thermostats mattered either.

Until we found out they control half of your home’s energy. That’s more than appliances, lighting, TVs, computers and stereos combined.

The problem

If your thermostat isn’t programmed, you could be wasting around $173 a year. But many of us don’t program our thermostats - they’re just too complicated.

What if you did?

Half of your home’s energy bill

A correctly programmed thermostat can save about 20% on your heating and cooling bill.

So we made it simple. Nest saves energy. Automatically.

All you need to do is change the temperature for a few days to teach Nest. After that Nest Sense™ learns about you and your home and starts activating features to save you more energy.

But we didn’t stop there.

Almost all thermostats are made for forced-air systems, but not all systems are forced air. With System Match, Nest activates custom energy-saving features depending on the system you have.

Filter Reminders

How Nest helps you save.

We looked at a year of data and created three families to illustrate how Nest can help save energy. Like many households, our families rarely or never programmed their previous thermostats. Here’s how they could use Nest to save.


Meet Johnny and Kate.

They have a 3,000 sq.ft. house in Chicago and two kids.


Nest learned from the efficient temperatures Johnny and Kate set—like 66°F/19°C at night in winter—and programmed itself to help them save. Before Nest, Johnny and Kate just left the house at 70°F/21°C year round.


Johnny avoids turning on the AC, but Airwave still helps them save on hot afternoons.


This family doesn't have a regular schedule, so they rely on Auto-Away. Kate sets their Away temperatures to 62°F/16°C in the winter and 82°F/28°C in the summer to save energy.


Meet Angelina and Dillon.

They’re newlyweds in Seattle with a 1,500 sq.ft. condo and no AC.


Angelina used to keep the house at 70°F/21°C all winter. After they got Nest, she started changing the temperature to 65°F/18°C when they were at work or asleep. Now they save energy while their dog stays comfortable.

Filter Reminders

There’s a lot of dog hair in the house, so Angelina and Dillon make sure to change the filter every time Nest reminds them.

Heat Pump Balance

Nest automatically activated Heat Pump Balance in their home, so Dillon moved it from Max Comfort to Max Savings to help them save.


Meet Tina and Joe.

They’re retired in Phoenix in a 2,000 sq.ft. home. Their grandkids often come over in the afternoons.


Considering how much AC Tina and Joe need in Phoenix in the summer, Airwave has made a big difference in their bill.


A couple times a week Tina and Joe go golfing. In the summer they set their Away temp to 79°F/26°C and in the winter to 62°F/16°C to save energy while they're gone.


This summer, Joe looked for the Nest Leaf and turned the temp up to 75°F/25°C instead of their usual 73°F/23°C. Auto-Schedule learned the habit and helps them save.

Every home, every state and every family uses energy differently.
