We gave thea for its sleek design, simple installation process and easy-to-use interface, both in the room and online. The popular smart thermostat is a good deal at its list price of $130, and currently it's $30 cheaper, so you can get it for $100.
Smart thermostats are designed, at least in part, to save you money on your energy bill and make it easy to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, and Nest is no different. You can set a daily schedule, either on the thermostat itself or in the Google Home ($72 at Walmart) app, to dial in your home's temperature for comfort or energy savings. You can also easily change the temperature in your home with simple voice commands to Google Assistant or Alexa ( ).
You may need to separately buy a $15 trim plate to cover up any wall damage from a previous thermostat.
Beyond the savings on the thermostat itself, Google makes it easy to find local rebates, usually from your utility. I checked my last five ZIP codes and found rebates in four of them. At my current address I was offered $50 back on the purchase of my Nest thermostat or $125 when I give my utility partial control of my air conditioner through the summer via a Nest Thermostat. Former ZIP codes offered $100 back, which means you could snag a Nest Thermostat for next to nothing.
Conditions apply (central air conditioning was required for several), so be sure to read the fine print, but the deal could be even sweeter.
