I'm with you, Count. It must be nice to have so much money that you can spend $179 on a thermostat.
I saved so much money by having the Nest, it would've paid for itself many times over by now. I lucked out and got mine for free from the electric company! But if mine went out, I'd buy another. I know what you're thinking but its not until you actually have one that you see how beneficial it is.

Looks like a $50 rebate for Nicor in IL. On the fence.
Can you send me link to this $50 rebate. I only saw $25. Thanks in advance.

IT is beneficial. But not any more than a <$50 programmable thermostat is beneficial.

Rats! I'm in NH, but National Grid (my supplier) only offers the $100 rebate for MA residents.

Can you combine the rebate offer from both Electric and Gas company? My electric is offering $25 and gas is offering $25, but both rebates are processed by EFi in MA.

I don't know if it is just my lowe's ( I live in Middletown, DE), but if you check on Lowes.com they have the generation 1 Nest for $158.40.

Couple that with with a 10% off coupon you can find just about anywhere (must be used in the store) and the price is $142.56.

If you live in somewhere with a rebate you may be abble to get this thing closer to $42-50.

Check it out.

If you missed this deal, you can possibly get this at lowe's for $198 - 10% mover's coupon = $178.2 + tax, and 5% cashback from shopdiscover or if you have chase freedom card, wait until next month to get it with additional 5% cashback...

I quickly glanced here [dsireusa.org] but looking around I can only find $20. Maybe we can find one for ComEd too.

Does anyone know if there's a rebate for Texas (Houston specifically)? I tried looking for some but had no luck. I currently have Reliant Energy which is supplied by Centerpoint.

I see ConEd with a $25 one for a programmable thermostat

Shoot, none of my Lowes show that price.

Not to thread crap, but any suggestions for Wifi thermostats that are a little cheaper than this? My main interest is to be able to login through my phone to make day to day adjustments on when to turn on the thermostat.

I honestly don't understand the fascination with these things. "It learns your schedule"? Don't you already know your own schedule? I program my schedule into a $40 programmable thermostat and it works perfectly. What does this thing actually improve on?
very good point!

Looks like neither requires UPC so i don't see a reason you couldnt.. neither say you need to use them for heat so both apply.

1) The point of every thermostat is to control the AC/heat. Turn the heat on when it gets too cold and turn the AC on when it gets too hot. The Nest doesn't break any new ground here.

2) The Nest is NOT designed to keep the house at a constant temperature. Most people either don't have or don't use a programmable thermostat, and do set what they have to a constant temp. This results in a lot of extra usage, such as the AC/heat running when nobody is home. The point of the Nest is to run only when necessary. Personally I used to keep the house at a constant 69F. Now that I have a Nest, I let the temp drop to 64F at night or when I'm not a home. Saves quite a bit of money.

3) The remote control feature of the Nest is one of it's biggest features and main selling points. Suppose your Nest has learned to heat your house to 70F by 5:30p when you get home from work. Suppose you leave early one day and would rather come home to a warm house rather than waiting until 5:30p for the heat to kick on. This is where the remote control feature is used.

4) You're SUPPOSED to adjust your Nest, either in person or remotely. The entire point of the Nest is that it learns your schedule and will learn to adjust itself accordingly. During the first two weeks or so, you adjust the temperature whenever you need to, such as leaving for work, coming home, night time, etc. The Nest will learn your behavior and begin to set it's own schedule based on that. Otherwise, you can just program a schedule into the Nest and never touch it again. However, this would be missing the point of a learning thermostat.

I've had my Nest (2nd gen) for about four months now and LOVE it. It's really made me conscious of how much I'm running my furnace. Also, the first two gas bills I've had since installing the Nest have been lower than the previous year, and not just by price, but by MCFs used. This despite the fact the average temperature has been lower this year than last. I expect to see similar results in the summer.

At this price, even for a 1st gen, I'd recommend one.
Thank you, that was much more informative even than Amazons description. ^_^ (perhaps you should post that review. :p)

I plan on getting one of these but I need to wait until I get home to see what generation I need.
