You can control it from anywhere with the Google Home app – whether you’re on an errand or on vacation. You can even change the temperature without getting off the couch or out of bed. Just say, “Hey Google, turn up the heat.”1 The Nest Thermostat looks out for your heating or cooling system. If something doesn’t seem right, it can send an alert. And it’s easy to install yourself, usually in 30 minutes or less.

Is there a circulate/recirculate option just to move the air without using heat or cool?

Asked by Laura February 11, 2021

If your forced air system has a separate fan wire in your Nest thermostat’s G connector, then yes, you can manually run the system fan when it’s not heating or cooling. Here´s a step by step guide to do it: - With the Nest Thermostat turned Off, tap your thermostat’s touch bar and select Fan. - Select ¨Turn on¨ and choose how long you’d like your fan to run, then tap confirm. - Choose Start to run the fan or Cancel. - Your fan will turn off automatically after the time you’ve selected, but you can turn the fan off early by selecting Stop from the fan menu.

Asked by Craco11 January 30, 2021

The new Nest Thermostat works with most 24V heating and cooling systems. This includes gas, electric, forced air, heat pump, radiant, oil, hot water, solar and geothermal. We recommend using our Compatibility Checker to see if your system is compatible with the Nest Thermostat. Here's the link: You can also contact one of our specialists to help you check the compatibility here:

Will this work with a two-wire system? My current thermostat is connected to the R and W terminal...

Asked by j666laz January 30, 2021

Yes. Nest Thermostat is designed to work with most 2-wire, 20V - 30V systems, and even older ones too. You need to check what the color of the wire is for, before you connect it on your Nest Thermostat. Do not connect the jumper wire to the Nest thermostat connector as it can damage your system and your thermostat. Nest thermostat connectors are built so that only one wire can be inserted into each connector.

I have a cabin with a basement. My home is 500 miles away. Can I check the basement temperature from home?

Asked by George January 26, 2021

Definitely! Nest Thermostat can help you monitor your cabin even if you're in another location. Both the Nest Thermostat and your mobile phone with the Google Home app must be connected to the Internet.

Solid Nest Product (update available though)
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m a huge fan of Google Nest products and most of our smart home system is on their stack. I had the Nest Thermostat E at another home before installing the Gen2, and it was interesting to see the differences. Installation wise, the two products are nearly identical. As with other Nest products, it was easy to follow the instructions. We just unscrewed the old thermostat, snapped in the 5 coloured wires, screwed it back on and everything turned on. The battery started charging and Google directed us to the website to download the app to complete the rest of the setup. Compared to the E, this thermostat is about 10% larger and thicker. Instead of a frosted white surface it’s a mirror finish. The thermostat uses a touch screen instead of a dial. Some things are nicer for this, but I really liked the tactile click and turn of the E. Compared to Gen1, 2 is supposed to be smaller, and the newer version that’s out is even thinner (but still thicker than the E) I like the Nest as a thermostat but do find I end up turning off some of the auto scheduling. If you manually override any settings, it tends to learn weird preferences. I see some other negative reviews about it – I don’t really use this feature, so I’m still happy with the product for being able to remotely manage the thermostat, and for general ease of setup and use. Unless you’re actively repainting or fixing your house, I recommend getting the trim plate in case your old thermostat is not exactly the same size. Between the Nest E and Nest, I find the E good enough for most cases, but the fact the new Nest supports the sensors is something I'll be looking into further.

Best thermostat ever !
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] i have a house from 1970s . i saw the Google Nest by a friend and realy liked it, but was woried that my old electric wiring was not compatible with it. i found the video how to check the wiring and it shows if its compatible. i right away went out and got me the Google Nest - Nest Thermostat G2 - Sunrise. i looked up the video how to install it, and step by step i installed it, it was so easy. i paired it with my other smart devices phone, tablet, and google.and can do the changing of the temperature from the comfort of my chair or away from home. it saves me energy and is so convienent and looks cool on top of it. i highly recommend the nest !

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is such an amazing product. The Google Nest Thermostat is very easy to install, very easy to use. You can control this thermostat from anywhere with the google Home Ap. The Nest has energy saving features and much more. You can adjust your thermostat while you are away from home. The item works with most systems such as gas, electric and variable speed. We got the sunrise color and looks great in our kitchen. You will not be sorry if you purchase the Nest Thermostat. We absolutely LOVE ours.

User friendly, efficient & so many great features!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've tried to convince my husband we needed the Google Nest Thermostat for years and we finally got one! Not only is it so much better than the standard one we had before, it has exceeded my expectations! The new design is so sleek and modern, it really elevates all home thermostats. It is almost like a statement piece of art on the wall, so elegant. I love the fact that if we are away, it knows to adjust the heat and when we come home, we can make sure our house is a comfortable temperature for us to come home too. The Google Nest also tells us what devices are on and in which room they are on in which is a great added feature I had no idea about. My husband had a little bit of difficulty installing the Nest because we have a more complicated heating system that needed a passcode to bypass the typical install, but once troubleshooting and explaining the issue with the Google help team, he was able to fix the problem. I'm so happy that we finally got the Google Nest Thermostat! If you are trying to become a more energy efficient household that also appreciates gadgets that are multifunctional, the Nest is the perfect purchase for you!

Super convenient!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am in love with this! I can change the temperature from anywhere and I love how I can be in bed and change the temperature without having to get out of my covers! The installation was very easy and fast with the app. Connection was fast and easy as well! Highly recommend!

Does the job as described
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This thermostat allows you to control the temperature from anywhere you are through the google home app. If you are on your way home you can turn it on remotely so it will be at the temperature you desire when you arrive. Once I got this installed it worked without any issues and controlled my AC with no problems. The con with this version of the thermostat is it doesn’t learn your habits and you have to program it through the app yourself. And also if your unit doesn’t have a C wire it will not work properly.

So Easy Use
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Google Nest Thermostat G2 is so user friendly and it has exceeded my expectations! My current thermostat was very dated and I experienced yearly issues with it. The Nest Thermostat is a huge upgrade and was very easy to install and is so easy to use. I highly recommend this Nest Thermostat to all homeowners!
by cgenerose23
The BEST Thermostat!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We love this thermostat. The design is minimal and sleek, similar to the older models, but with a thinner profile and about a 3 1/2" diameter. The display is bright and sharp and I love the easy adjustment slider along the edge. Install took under 10 minutes and the app connection took less than 5 to setup. It has motion and humidity sensors and suggests presets for different times of the day and how you can save energy. As advertised, this is a smart thermostat that will help you save energy and looks amazing on your wall!
