- i was surprised that it will not allow more than one user to control it. it would seem natural that my wife and I would both want to be able to make occasional adjustments
Not sure why that’s the case – we have two users connected to ours without any problems.February 14, 2015 11:16 am at 11:16 am #1063563
Have had one for about two years. Energy savings were noticeable from the start. Highly recommended.
Look at the wiring on the circuit board of your furnace, I made the mistake of wiring my nest up how my previous thermostat was wired and it didn’t function properly. Also a heads up, most furnaces have have safety switch on the circuit board cover panel, so make sure you put that back on before you turn on the nest.February 14, 2015 11:18 am at 11:18 am #1063564
I had the HVAC guys add a C wire to my nest because I was also worried about it. That being said, it’s my understanding that most furnaces won’t be upset by the slight parasitic loss from the thermostat.

After further inspection (as in pulling the wires all the way out of the wall) I did have a Common wire (C) it just wasn’t hooked up to the last thermostat. I hooked it up to the NEST and hooked it to the circuit board on the furnace and we’re up and running.
thanks for answering my questions CU people. Let the savings begin (hopefully)February 20, 2015 10:50 am at 10:50 am #1064328
So I’ve had one for a week and this morning it gives me the message that it can auto set to home and away now. I’ve been using the scheduler all week so I’m guessing it will base it off of that? One thing I have learned is it takes a long time to heat my house. (and it’s not a very large house). I am using the setting to preheat to my desired temp before I get home and most of the time it says it will take around 1.5-2 hours to get to that temp (from 64 away temp, to 68 home temp)
happy with my purchase so far.February 20, 2015 12:36 pm at 12:36 pm #1064390
From experience, I’d wait a couple more months before letting it auto-set. This time of year is not the time to come home to a cold house.February 20, 2015 2:13 pm at 2:13 pm #1064417

yup, just had that happenFebruary 20, 2015 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #1064436
I think Nest’s intuition is maybe just a step up from Microsoft Word’s Clippy.
