A few months ago during the winter, I took a Caribbean Cruise and had a house sitter to feed the cat and check the mail. When I came back from the cruise, my house was hot like an oven and it turns out that the house sitter forgot to turn off the heater for the two weeks I was gone! When I got my electric bill, it was a whopping $200+ and I normally pay less than $90 for two months on my electricity!!!
I heard a lot of things about the Nest Thermostat, which is basically a smart thermostat which can control your central air-conditioning or heater from your smartphone. It seemed like a smart solution where I can control my AC from anywhere in the house, or anywhere in the WORLD if I wanted to. But at a staggering $249, is this really worth it?
