Heating and cooling account for 48% of a home's energy use. With utility rates in California, this is big money. While upgrading to the most efficient heating and cooling system is a smart choice, doing so can be expensive. An easier and more affordable way to cut your heating/cooling costs is to upgrade to a programmable thermostat.

Nest estimates that users save 10-12% on heating and 15% on cooling costs.
