Marilyn’s 10 Days of Giveaways

Day One: The Homeowner Gift Guide

Nest Learning Thermostat, $249

50 percent of your home’s energy is used in heating and cooling your house. However, if a properly programmed thermostat is installed in your home you can save 20 percent of that energy.  Sounds simple, but programming a thermostat can be complicated. Only 11 percent of programmable thermostats are programmed.

With Nest’s learning thermostat these programming hassles will disappear. Use it like a manual thermostat for a week and a Nest Learning Thermostat will program itself! It will familiarize itself with your daily routine and create a personalized schedule automatically, refining this schedule as it gets to know you better.

With built-in activity sensors it automatically powers down your heating and cooling system to save energy when you are not home. You can also connect the Nest to your Smartphone, tablet or computer so you can control the temperature of you home anywhere and everywhere you go. 

Available at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Amazon.ca or at www.nest.com/ca
