We’re happy to announce a new partnership with Nest in which we’re working together to help our community of hosts and guests conserve energy and have a positive impact on their local environments.
We provided selected Airbnb hosts in the US with the Nest Learning Thermostat with features such as Auto-Away which turns down the heat when a host or guest is not home, and can be controlled from anywhere in the world with a mobile app – perfect for travelers! And with Nest’s MyEnergy service, hosts can easily track their energy consumption and improve their home’s efficiency.
Our community is passionate about environmental sustainability. In a recent study on the environmental impacts of home sharing, we found that Airbnb guests in North America use 63 percent less energy than hotel guests. This partnership with Nest gives our hosts more control over their home’s energy consumption, with technology that is both beautiful in design and good for the planet.
If you’re a traveler looking to stay in a more efficient home when you travel, we’ve created a wish list of some of the homes on Airbnb that are already using the Nest Learning Thermostat—take it for a spin in one of these fantastic listings.
