This year, the best piece of smart home tech to invest in is a smart thermostat. With energy prices the number one concern for most households, smart heating gives you more control over your energy use and spending.
You can also make savings by scheduling heating only when and where you need it. In the past, we’ve been sceptical of brands’ claims of huge savings when you switch to a smart thermostat – but now that energy prices have risen, you will recoup your investment and start saving much more quickly.
Nest smart thermostats also have hot water control, Home/Away assist and OpenTherm support, all of which will ensure you’re only heating your water and your home as much as you need to. In addition, the Learning models will adjust to your home and schedule to help you to save.
The Nest thermostat also has the advantage of working seamlessly with other Nest products like the doorbell, cameras and more, for a complete smart home set up you can schedule and control with voice commands.
When is Black Friday?
This year, Black Friday falls on 25 November. Some of the deals will drop early, some will appear on the day and some will continue through to Cyber Monday on 28 November. This means it can be hard to know when to go for a deal and when to wait to see if prices drop further. The best advice we can give is to set yourself a budget and a savings goal and keep checking back. The biggest discounts can appear quickly and sell out quickly, so if a deal is better than most, jump on it quickly.
We’ve rounded up the best deals we can find on Nest thermostats right here, but for discounts across all types of tech, have a look at our dedicated Black Friday deals section.
