Get Back to Business with Nest

Sep 11, 2014 | Amanda Lomupo

If you are a business owner, then we don’t need to remind you that energy costs account for a huge portion of your company’s operating expenses. Between being an expert in your field, managing your employees, and trying to cut costs, when would you possibly have time to research all of the new energy efficiency tools out there? Probably never!

Direct Energy Business and Nest are here to help. We did the research for you. Together, we have a simple solution to help you manage your business’ daily energy usage and protect you from energy rate spikes. It stems from a device that is often overlooked and undervalued - your thermostat. 

Consider all of the equipment you use on a daily basis to keep your business running.  While you might not be able to control how much your printer needs to run, or how many computers you need, you can gain better control over how much energy you use to heat and cool your business. The Nest Learning Thermostat can learn the habits of your business and help teach you how to gain better control over your energy usage, and therefore your costs. Better yet, with the Back to Business Plan from Direct Energy Business, you can lock in your energy rate and stop worrying about fluctuating energy costs.

What makes the Nest Learning Thermostat so special and unique? In addition to being simple to install yourself, this innovative thermostat programs itself based on your energy habits. It will learn your schedule in as little as one week, and begin to adjust the temperature automatically so you don’t have to. No more manually programming it every day and then trying to remember to turn it down at night.

And here are some other innovative ways Nest can help you save energy:

  • Thermostat Lock: Set a password to control the range within which your employees can adjust the temperature.
  • Auto-Away: After everyone has left work for the day, the Nest Thermostat senses you’ve gone and automatically adjusts the temperature to avoid heating or cooling an empty building.
  • The Nest Leaf: Teach employees about the Nest Leaf.  It appears when energy is being saved, guiding employees to an energy efficient temperature.
  • Remote Control: When you connect your Nest to Wi-Fi, you can control it from anywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
  • Nest can also send you a Monthly Energy Report, showing you how you use your energy each month, and how the various features help keep your usage in check.  Nest will also give you tips on how to reduce your use!

Together, Direct Energy Business and Nest can take away the stress of making your business more energy efficient, which could save you money and time. Take that vacation we know you need and let Nest ease your energy usage worries. Let us help you get back to business!
