Two of Google’s smart thermostats are on sale for up to 23% off as June 24:
No one talks about how Hot Girl Summer is only one 90-degree day away from being a Sweaty Girl Summer, and eventually a High Energy Bill Girl Summer. (That’s a thing, right?)
If you plan on blasting your air conditioning with abandon for the next few months, simply updating your HVAC system with a programmable smart thermostat can be a total game-changer: Google’s popular Nest models, at least, have been found to save their households an average of 10 to 12% on heating bills and 15% on cooling bills. They basically pay for themselves over time, when you think about it.
Coincidentally, Walmart and Amazon had two of them on sale just in time for July (the month when most parts of the contiguous U.S. have their hottest day of the year) — get the recently revamped Nest Thermostat for just under $100, or upgrade to the Nest Learning Thermostat for about $200.
We’ve got the scoop on both below, in case you’re not sure which one to get:
The No. 1 bestseller in Amazon’s “Home Programmable Thermostats” category, Google’s standard Nest Thermostat was refreshed in fall 2020 with motion-sensing Soli technology, touch controls, additional energy features — including a schedule-analyzing Savings Finder — and a mirrored design in four sleek styles. (There’s a dark gray Charcoal, a white/light gray Snow, a peachy/rose gold Sand, and the greenish-gray Fog.)
It was still sitting at its Prime Day price the last time we checked — snag one from either Amazon or Walmart for only $99.98, or 23% off its $129.99 MSRP. (Note: The Fog and Snow ones are currently out of stock on Amazon, but you still have the option of placing an order now to lock in this sale pricing.)
The third-gen Google Nest Learning Thermostat (which is Amazon’s second-bestselling programmable thermostat, FWIW) is a slightly fancier model that’ll start making automatic adjustments to its temperature schedule based on your routine and changing seasons after just a week of use. This one sports a high-res digital display with Farsight, a feature that lights up its screen with time, temperature, and weather info when it detects your presence in the room.
Typically $249, Amazon and Walmart both had it on sale for $199 at the time of writing — a 20% savings — in your choice of six shiny finishes: Brass, Copper, Mirror Black, Polished Steel, Stainless Steel, and White.
