Getting Tech Savvy with San Diego Condos

By Mike in Downtown San Diego Real Estate with 0 Comments

More often as we are viewing San Diego Condos with clients, The Nest thermostats are seen more and more often.  Regulating cooling and heat relative to San Diego condos is usually not too difficult…there is usually not too much of a temperature range in southern California. However…everyone loves to talk about energy efficiency, saving money, and keeping your home comfortable.   San Diego condos are kept most efficient when a regular temperature is maintained. It takes 2/3 more energy to heat or cool your San Diego condo by 2 degrees.   Most people like to turn the A/C off when they leave and “cool” down their condo when they arrive home.   In the case of San Diego condos…they are made with a-lot of materials that radiate residual heat and cool (metal, cement, glass, etc).  If they are kept at a constant temp throughout the day…it will actually take less energy than significant gains or decreases several times a day. One of the best ways to keep a constant temperature is to install a digital and interactive thermostat device like The Nest.   Easy to use and install it is a great tool to make sure that your San Diego condo stays efficient and comfortable.

Auto Scheduling:  “The Nest Learning Thermostat programs itself in about a week. It creates a personalized schedule based on the temperature changes you’ve made and continually adapts to your changing life.”

Energy Savings: “Want to know if you’re saving energy when you change the temp? The Nest Leaf appears when you turn Nest to a temperature that’s energy efficient. It guides you in the right direction.”

Remote Access: “Change the temperature in your condo from anywhere using your smartphone, tablet or laptop. You can also adjust your schedule and check your Energy History.”

Auto Away: After you leave your condo, the Nest Thermostat senses you’ve gone and automatically adjusts the temperature to avoid heating or cooling an empty condo.”
