NEST Thermostat Installation By Service Experts

We have been slowly, but surly trying to make our home more and more energy efficient. Each and every project we complete lowers our electricity a bit- saving us, sometimes more in a year than the project even cost to complete! We started with simple things like switching to LED light bulbs, weatherstripping our doors and making sure all of our windows had an air tight seal. Neither my husband or I are very handy- so simple projects are all we really could do!

A few weeks ago, when my friend bought a new home- she told me about this awesome thermostat they installed that would learn from what they did and program itself to keep the inside of their house a comfortable temperature, while tracking and saving energy and I knew for sure- that would be our next project! But, installing a thermostat is a bit above my knowledge bracket- so I contacted the folks at Service Experts!

Service Experts offer complete, custom home comfort services all performed by their trusted furnace and air conditioning contractors! They have more than 3,000 employees and 110 service locations throughout North America, so you probally have one close to you too! They specialize in energy-saving Green Solutions, including household energy-reduction products and green heating and cooling technology! I knew right away they were perfect for the job I had in mind!

Our old thermostat got the job done, but it continually ran and programming it was such a hassle. I am sure lots of you have one similar to our old one…

If you are looking to upgrade something in your house, I bet your thermostat probably isn’t to high up on your list. But it should be! The revolutionary NEST Learning Thermostat can help you significantly reduce your energy consumption and utility bils- and who doesnt want to save a bit of money?

Developed by a designer of the iPod and iPhone, the NEST can be connected to your home’s Wi-Fi so you can control it from your laptop, smartphone or tablet. Sensing and learning your family’s behavior and temperature preferences, the NEST Thermostat:

  • Eliminates complicated programming
  • Learns your favorite temperature adjustments
  • Saves energy by sensing when you’re away
  • Tracks energy savings
  • Provides remote temperature and scheduling control
  • Save as much as 30% on energy costs
  • Prevent inconvenient breakdowns
  • Extend your equipment service life

Our Service Experts technician arrived on time and ready to install our NEST! He opened the box and explained to us every single piece that came with the NEST. It is nice to know how the inside of our device is working as well as the outside and our technician explained everything!

I was seriously blown away by how friendly our technician was. Emmitt, our 18 month old was literally beneath his feet during the entire install- and he just smiled and giggled with him and worked on! I have never, in my entire life- experienced a technician this nice!

In no time at all our Nest Thermostat was installed and up and running! We connected it to our Wifi, set our away minimum and maximum temperatures and downloaded the apps to our phones. Then the technician helped us set up a few more preferences just for our home! It looks so streamlined and high tech compared to our last thermostat! I am going to use it for a month or so, see how it effects my electric bill and how quickly it learns our patterns and then you will be able to read my review of the Nest! Stay tuned!!

  1. Ohh!! I want one!! That looks so cool!

  2. Jennifer Mae Hiles says

    I cringe when I get to work and realize I forgot to turn down the heat! We have use fuel oil and spend about $1700 every winter. I’m not sure what is normal but I’m betting it’s less than that! I would love to have one of these!

  3. Michelle Spayde says

    Our thermostat is fairly new, and we certainly did not have the level of service that you did! I still don’t know how to work the darned thing properly!

  4. That looks so high-tech! We finally got a digital one a few years back and I’m still learning how to use it!

  5. Diane Sallans says

    Isn’t that the coolest thing – I have your old style of themostat – wish I knew about the Nest when they were installed a few years ago

  6. OMG, I love how Emmitt is such a helper! The NEST looks super awesome! When we get a house (we are in an apartment) this is definitely something I want to get!

  7. Wendy @ ABCs and Garden Peas says

    Ooh! It’s pretty cool looking! I know functionality is the most important thing, but it DOES have to be right there on your wall, so it has to look good too!

  8. Danielle @ We Have It All says

    Whoa that’s pretty fancy! My thermostat does not work right, I hate it… LOVE this one though!

  10. Amanda West says

    That is so neat!! I love the way it looks. Can’t wait to hear how it works out for you!

  11. Very cool! And you’re so lucky to have had such a nice technician! He looks amazing with Emmitt.

  12. Bethany Fields says

    Wow this way outdoes my thermostat!


  14. This is so cool! I live in an apt so I don’t use one of those because I don’t have central air. Very cool tho! 🙂

  15. Thanks for the info and review. I love how it can have you save money. Our electric bill due to the air conditioning here in South Florida is always to the roof so anything that can help us with that is always good news. I’ll look into it more! 🙂

  16. Michelle Feliciano says

    I love that you can control it from your laptop or smart phone. Very cool!

  17. John Lindell says

    Nest thermostats are nice! I have installed a handful of them myself and hear good things about them from the ones I have installed. But for the install in your home I would move your TV or move the thermostat to a new location. The heat that comes off the newer TV’s will give you a false reading of the temp in the home when you are watching TV. By doing this you will have a lot more energy savings and comfort in your home with your new thermostat.

  18. The NEST Thermostat looks very nice. Thanks for the interesting and informative review!

  19. My step dad is an has been an hvac tech for 15 years, I’ve never seen a thermostat this cool I’m going to ask him about it

  20. Great review! I’d love to have such a smart thermostat that learns and has remote access.

  21. bekah anderson says

    thats pretty cool!

  22. I would love this for my apartment…

  23. abby albritton says

    love it! really want one…

  24. Cassandra Eastman says

    This is so neat, I can’t believe it can save as much at 30 percent in energy cost! So high tech!!!

  25. Wow, that looks super cool! It may take me a reeeaallly long time to teach my son not to mess with it b/c i’m sure my 3 yr old will agree. but wow, i’d still love it!

  26. Programmable thermostats are the way to go. It is interesting that it can sense when you are away? That would be nice to have for when hubby overrides the programmed setting and then leaves the house without resetting it back.

  27. I have a programmable thermostat but this looks like a better one and to be able to track your savings is great thing to have these days

  28. This is really clever – I’m trying to be more environmentally friendly too, especially if it can save me money! I love that this tracks your savings so you know exactly how much you are profiting from being better to the planet!

  29. Jennifer Mae Hiles says

    Love the remote that comes with it! I also love how it lights up, that would be handy for one of those winter nights when you wake up and realize it’s way colder outside than you thought it would be!

  30. InezbyDesign says

    This is very neat! We have such weather fluctuations I find it hard to program the thermostat…not to mention the difference in tolerance of hot/cold between my hubby & me. I like that this one connects to our wifi.

  31. I have a Nest, and love it so much! It’s nice to be able to control it from the computer and also see how much heating time we’ve used each day. I installed ours myself but when we got a new furnace the installers moved it a little to the side, and now we can see part of a hole behind the backing plate… need to move it back where I want it! Great device.

  32. These thermostats look easy to use. At least u don’t have to keep adjusting.

  33. That is so cool – we have radiant heat, though – I wonder if it would work with that?

  34. This nest thermostat is AMAZING – I think it looks so sleek – wish I could get one! 🙂

  35. Carolyn Ann Colley (Griffith, Smith) says

    Really nice, I would like to have these in my house.
