Since its release, the Nest Learning Thermostat has helped users save nearly eight billion kWh of energy. In addition to lower utility bills, users love the ease of installation and the convenience of controlling everything from an app.
Another favorite feature is the attractive design. The thermostat comes in a variety of finishes like copper, stainless steel, black, and white, to complement nearly any home decor. For homeowners who want more design options, accessories like Wasserstein’s Stainless Steel Wall Plate Cover add extra style.
Even though Amazon shows a 4.6-star rating for the Nest Learning Thermostat, there are a few things users complain about. The Farsight feature, which prompts the thermostat to light up and display the current temperature and local weather whenever someone enters a room, was criticized a lot at first. Customers didn’t like that it displayed only the set temperature and not the actual room temperature. To its credit, Nest paid attention to customer feedback and enhanced this feature.
Price can be another point of contention. At around $250, the Nest Learning Thermostat is one of the more expensive thermostats. However, more than 10,000 Amazon reviews indicate that customers are largely satisfied with the results, and many say that this thermostat more than pays for itself in energy savings.
