I checked my local utilities, no rebates except that the Nest can tell when we're going into a "conserve power" time and if you let it turn your A/C up they credit you bill (or something like that). I'm probably going to get it just to get it. I can use it when I eventually (maybe) can afford a house, and it'll be a fun gadgety type thing to have in the meantime.
So the thing is, I've never lived somewhere with a thermostat. It's always been no A/C or wall units. The main thing going for this is the cost saving factor. My buddy says it saves him something like $20 a month, but he lives in an actual house, so I figure about $10ish for me in a 1k sq foot apt. I think I just really like having gadgets and this seems like a fun toy. The ability to control the thermostat from my phone while out of the house seems like it'd be cool, if only to be able to fuck with my wife while I'm on work trips.
So I'm moving into a non-shithole apartment next month. The new place has central air, and I'm thinking about getting a Nest for the place. Anyone have any experience with these things, and are they worth $250? My coworker is a huge evangelist, but his is the only opinion I really have.
