This post is part of a partnership with Whirlpool’s Every day, care. campaign. I had a great time learning about their new innovations at the Consumer Electronics Show and am really excited to share them with you! – Meagan
I’ll admit it: when my husband brought home a Nest thermostat a few years ago, I was skeptical.
“What’s so hard about walking over to the wall to adjust the temperature?” I asked (very nearly continuing with “Back in my day…” while shaking my cane.)
But within a few months, I was a convert.
After we adjusted the temperatures ourselves for a while (often from bed, which is awesome in and of itself,) Nest soon seemed to realize what our preferences are and took over the job. Rather than having to program the thermostat myself or remember to turn it down before I go to bed, Nest now senses when our family is awake and active, when we’re in bed, and when we’re gone – and adjusts the heat or cooling up and down accordingly. Soon I realized we were saving money on our utility bills without having to think about our heating and cooling at all.
So when I was at the Consumer Electronics Show and discovered that Nest technology, is for the first time, teaming up with an appliance brand – our sponsor, Whirlpool! – to help families save money, energy and time on their laundry, I was more than a little bit intrigued.
(Here’s a short video about the new partnership between Nest and Whirlpool. You’ll see a glimpse of Jim Higley, Leticia Barr and I around the 30-second mark!)
