We continue to track the energy savings with our Nest True Radiant House, and we are seeing energy usage continue to decrease, all the while without negatively affecting comfort and warmth inside of this 11,000 square foot (including the Basement) Nest True Radiant Home.
This fully functional radiant heating home, does not use the conventional forced-air heating system, but instead effectively uses radiant heating (floor heating and radiant panels) as a primary heating source for the home. While the homeowners have experienced significant savings since making their entire home radiant, they are now enjoying additional energy efficiency with the Nest True Radiant installation.
Prior to installing and integrating the Nest Thermostat (2nd generation) with their radiant heating systems, the homeowners' energy consumption was 30-47 percent higher, consuming approximately 100+ kwH more per week in three of the most highly trafficked areas of their home - the living room, kitchen, and basement.
Now with full inclusion of the Nest Thermostat, utilizing its True Radiant feature, the homeowners have seen a steady decrease in kWh consumption and a consequential reduction in operating costs from week-to-week.
Another excellent feature of the Nest with True Radiant, is that you are able to access and affect your energy usage anywhere at anytime from your computer, smartphone, or tablet. The Nest will allow you to monitor and program multiple rooms in your home, all from one convenient portal.
Stay tuned to our blog, as we continue to document the energy savings with our first ever Nest True Radiant House by WarmlyYours. We are committed to putting energy savings and control in your hands, our valued customer.
