In a word...YES. I live in northern Illinois where winter temps often hover near sub-zero for weeks on end. I do not live an extravagant lifestyle but my personal comfort is a priority and for that reason my thermostat remains at a constant 74 degrees. Rarely do I make any adjustments except to occasionally raise it to 76 in the early mornings. That said, I think The Nest is priced very reasonably and would take the inconvenience factor out of lowering it when I'm out for the day. For those of you that want whine and bitch that this device is too expensive...I suggest you look for a higher paying job or shut the hell up.
