Google Nest thermostats are engineered to learn from you and your home. They will learn to keep you comfortable when you’re home and save energy while you’re away.
There are lots of ways to help improve energy savings and reduce your utility bills. Here are some steps you can take that can help reduce your energy use:
Set your Eco Temperatures thoughtfully
Your thermostat can switch to Eco Temperatures when no one’s home to help you save energy. When you choose energy-efficient Eco Temperatures setting, it will prevent your home from wasting energy while everyone is gone. The more efficient your Eco Temperatures are, the more you’ll save. But, but be sure not to set your Eco Temperatures too low or too high if you have pets, plants, or delicate items in your home.

Save while you're away on vacation
If you’ll be away for a long time, like a holiday or vacation, there are a few more options to save energy, like setting your thermostat to Off mode.

Avoid cranking the heat or air conditioner (AC)
Most systems won’t heat your home any faster if you set your thermostat to a higher temperature, but your system will likely run longer and use more energy. If you want it to be 72°F or 22°C inside and you turn the heat up to 90°F or 30°C, it will warm just as fast as if you set the temperature to 72°F or 22°C.
If you crank up the heat or AC often enough, your Nest thermostat will learn these temperatures and automatically add them to your schedule, which can use even more energy.
