    "We're really pleased with the excellent work done by your crew. They were fast, efficient and easy to work with. Our garage is not flooding for the first time in six years thanks to the new down spout and paintwork."

  • The Nest Automated Thermostat: A Review

    [caption id="attachment_8510" align="alignleft" width="300"] The Nest Learning Thermostat[/caption]

    We here at Reilly Painting and Contracting are big fans of home automation systems, both for their ease of use and their money-saving potential. But our worries of home automation systems include hoping that the systems actually live up to their promises. They are pretty large investments that offer up a lot of benefits, but are they as easy to use as they claim? Can I track the heat in my house to see when I'm actually saving energy (and money)?

    The Nest automated thermostat system is one such system that we have found to work remarkably well. There are a few Nests installed in Reilly Property rental homes to see if the hype matches its performance in the field and we have to say that they do. It can link up with the home's WiFi network to allow the users to access the Nest's controls wirelessly via Android, iPad and iPhone apps. There is even a site to help you track your energy savings over time, and show you how its reading your schedule and habits to better fit your lifestyle. Featuring a sleek and slim wall panel, it surpasses any other thermostat in terms of aesthetics and ease of use.

    After finding a similar review of the Nest here, we at Reilly Painting and Contracting give the Nest two thumbs up. And for more tips on upgrading your home, take a look at our blog. And if you’re looking for a house for rent in Cleveland, OH, take a look at our Cleveland rental properties and call Reilly Painting and Contracting for all your Home Mechanic and remodeling needs.
