We put together a little piece on our sister site iMore digging into how much money you can potentially save with smart thermostats like Nest. It's murky water to be sure; climate, insulation, personal preference, and time away from home can lead to some wildly differing results, but we do our best to rein in the data that's available and set expectations for users eager to get in on the WiFi thermostat craze.
Of course, we're always eager to hear about your experiences with these kinds of devices. Do you find you've earned back in savings what you paid for the thermostat? How are you going about automating climate control in your home? What's the biggest thing stopping you from making the plunge? Sound off in the comments, and be sure to take a gander at our piece on iMore!
