Nest Thermostat Offers More Energy-Saving Features

Originally published: 10.30.12 by


Nest Labs recently announced its second-generation thermostat. It is 20 percent slimmer and now compatible with 95 percent of low-voltage residential heating and cooling systems, the company says. Nest is also releasing version 3.0 of its software. New and existing customers will get several industry-first features that help to even better balance comfort and conservation.

The thermostat also has a new all-stainless steel ring that mirrors wall color or patterns to create a chameleon effect and blend into any décor more effectively, the company says. It extends support to two-stage cooling, three-stage heating, and emergency heat for heat pumps, as well as whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers.

A number of new software 3.0 features are available with the new device, including an early-on feature to match desired temperature and schedule. Nest also calculates the health of the system’s air filter – based on system runtime – and offers reminders for when to change it to maintain efficiency. A Heat Pump Balance feature optimizes how often owners need to use expensive auxiliary (AUX) heat. 

There also are enhanced auto-away and auto-schedule features, and broader mobile support.
