How to add Your Nest Thermostat to the Nest app

The summer heat in Jacksonville can wreak havoc on your power bill, as can the unpredictable weather during spring. The revolutionary Nest thermostat is a smart way to have better control of your thermostat and use less energy.

Along with HVAC replacement, the Nest thermostat can make your house run smarter and more efficiently. After a week or two of use, the Nest thermostat will begin to learn your temperature habits and automatically adjust your settings, and even turn off and on by itself. The Nest thermostat also lets you use your phone or tablet to remotely control it through the Nest app. If you’re new to Nest, follow the guide below to learn how to add your thermostat to the Nest app and start saving money today.
