If you are thinking about your home’s heating, you may be interested to learn that former Apple iPod and iPhone hardware development chief Tony Fadell’s Nest Learning Thermostat is the latest entrant to the Apple Store.

The Nest Learning Thermostat, made by Nest Labs, is a touch-controlled thermostat that can learn your preferred temperatures and daily schedule, adjust the temperature automatically when no one is at home, help you learn how to save on energy costs and can be controlled remotely via the web or your iPhone. According to the company, it can save you as much as US$173 per year on your energy bill.

The thermostat will be available to buy in US Apple Stores for US$249.99, according to 9to5Mac, but it isn’t actually on sale yet.
