About This Product

Nest thermostats are designed to work without a C wire in most homes. But some systems may require a C wire for consistent power to your Nest thermostat. The Nest Power Connector is an affordable C-wire substitute for homes that don't have one. It doesn't require any new thermostat wiring. And with simple instructions, you can even install it yourself.

Highlights

  • C-wire substitute for Nest thermostats: nest thermostats are designed to work without a C wire in most homes, but for some systems, including heating-only, cooling-only, zone-controlled, and heat pump systems, you'll need a nest power connector or C wire
  • Works with 24 VAC systems: nest power connector is only compatible with 24 VAC systems, so it won't work with millivolt or high voltage systems
  • Installation is simple: attaches to your furnace, air handler, or zone controller, and comes with simple instructions
  • Costs less than a new C wire: nest power connector is an affordable C-wire substitute that's designed to be compatible with nest thermostats - and costs much less than hiring an electrician to install a new C wire through your walls
  • Thoughtfully designed: nest power connector resists dust and water, and is made from 46% recycled plastic, wire connectors and sticky pad are designed for easy, mess-free installation

    Q:Will this be useful for installing a Nest to replace my Fujitsu heat pump thermostat? I already bought a converter. I was told I need a 24 volt transformer too. Can this act as a transformer ?

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi there, Eric. Thanks for your inquiry about the Nest Power Connector. If your thermostat has power related issues, like the battery draining too quickly or Wi-Fi constantly disconnecting, you can typically fix them by connecting a common wire (C wire) or by installing the Nest Power Connector. Either one will provide a stable power source for your Nest thermostat when your system can’t deliver enough consistent power to it. If you need any technical help in the future, please don't hesitate to contact us on our Google Nest Help page here: https://support.google.com/googlenest/gethelp

          Sure beats running a new wire in my system
          My heat system is hydronic with 24-volt power for zone valves and pump relays. The thermostats have two wires, red and white, no C (common) wire. A Nest Thermostat showed an error with no C wire. I got a Nest Power Connector to correct this. The gray R and W wires connect to the primary thermostat. The white wires connect: R wire to the 24-volt load, W wire to the zone valve switch, C wire (and "return" wire from the valve switch) to the transformer "C". When powered up everything worked great, like the Nest Thermostat was connected to a C wire.

            yes, it’s compatible but i am a proffered installer and you definitely need a professional installer to do it. Do not install yourself as you might damage the system.
