I use the nest with sense and auto away. I can also turn it back on a few hrs before I'm home if I'm on vacation. I'm sure it saves us a lot of money a year.flashheatingand said:Speaking air to air heating: Just when you get home. I kn0w our place starts to feel comfortable within a couple of minutes while running. Also, as stated before, I like the equipment to run steadily as opposed to the shorter cycles.
Even if he was he's in the other extreme. 45f is cold and 45c is hot. I would want either temp in my house. We hit 55 in our house once and my wife nearly froze to death lol.SDel Prete said:Oh yes. I always forget about the other form of measurement lol.
Sure it takes a Spell to heat the walls and furniture but things start to feel better within minutes.I use to keep mine pretty low when we were away at work. That all changed when we had a power outage that took hold a few hours after we went to work. No power outage at my work or my wife's so it was unknown to us. Of course it was in the teens and by the time we got home the house was 50F. Power didn't come back on for a few hours and it took a good long time to get the house back up to temperature. The walls and floors and everything in the house had equalized to about 48F, so we weren't just heating the air to get things warmed up, we had to heat everything.
While we were gone I was keeping the temp at 60F, now I keep things at about 65F when we are gone. Only took one hard lesson to teach me that it doesn't take long for a house to cool off when it's frigid outside.
Yep, 45°F.45 degrees in your home during the winter?
They don't know what they are talking about. I get an email once a month showing my savings from nest. I have got my usage down quite a bit. At our Familey beach house the nest paid for its self in 2-3months. Programmable stats ain't much use unless you program them though.totes said:Just read an article that claims programable thermostats do not save any money. I was surprised by that. (JLC july page 65)
I suppose it would feel good but F that lol. I don't bust my butt not to have a warm homebeenthere said:Yep, 45°F. I'm gone for 10, 12, or 16 hours, so why keep it warm. Yes, its takes some time for it to warm back up if its 10 degrees F outside. But 45 sure does feel warm when you have been out in that 10 degree weather for 1/2 the day or more.
