Many people are spending more money than is necessary to cool their homes. Combining a Nest Learning Thermostat and an energy-efficient Carrier AC unit is a great step toward saving energy and money.
Your Nest and Carrier products will work together to handle your HVAC needs and lower your home energy usage.
Many people who own a programmable thermostat don't utilize its full potential. The Nest thermostat was designed with simplicity in mind. According to Nest, 89 percent of programmable thermostats waste energy because they are too complicated for most people to program. An improperly programmed thermostat costs about $173 extra per year due to incorrect thermostat settings.
Once you have your Nest AC thermostat set up, all you have to do is change the temperature a few times and the thermostat begins to program itself to meet your needs. You can even program your thermostat using the Nest for iPhone app, as long as the Nest is connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Carrier air conditioners are designed to work quietly and efficiently. The company offers a variety of Carrier HVAC systems to accommodate your personal requirements: split systems, hybrid heat systems, ductless split systems and more.
When you are trying to choose an air conditioner to handle your home cooling, it is important to consider the seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) rating. The higher this number is, the less energy the unit will use.
Choosing a unit with a high SEER will ensure your Nest and Carrier units work together to save you as much money as possible.
It is wise to hire a contractor to install your Nest and Carrier units. It could be dangerous for you to handle the installation by yourself. Also, hiring a licensed contractor to install your air conditioner is often a requirement for your warranty to be valid.
Just as air conditioner prices vary, installation costs will differ depending on the contractor. Consulting multiple contractors and getting an air conditioner estimate from each one will help you get the cheapest price possible. Many contractors will give you a free estimate without requiring you to commit to anything. Take advantage of this and shop around.
Saving money every month on your utility bill can add up quickly. The Nest thermostat is easy to use and automatically learns how to program itself to meet your needs. Your Nest and Carrier products will work together to efficiently cool your house and save you money.
