What is a Nest Thermostat
and how does it work?

The Nest Thermostat is a wireless home thermostat that learns what you like and updates itself automatically so you can say goodbye to programming. Wherever you are, you can adjust the temperature using your mobile, tablet or laptop and return to a cosy home.

As soon as it’s installed the Nest Thermostat starts learning. After a week, it has figured out your routine and set itself to save you energy and money. As your habits and the weather changes, it continues to update to help you save energy.

Programming is history

After just one week, the Nest Thermostat learns what you like and programmes itself.

On-the-go control

With the Nest App, you can control your heating and hot water wherever you are.

Come back to a cosy home

True Radiant learns how long your home takes to warm up and turns on the heat at the right time.

Make Seasonal Savings

The Nest Thermostat fine tunes its programme in the winter. Maximising your savings and minimising your effort.

Know more, save more

Keep an eye on your daily usage on the app, plus pick up some energy saving tips with your monthly report.

Control your hot water

Whether you’re home early or late, turn your hot water on and off, or even give it a boost if you need a little extra.


It takes time for your home to heat up and turning the thermostat to the maximum temperature won’t speed it up. With the Time-to-Temperature feature, the Nest Thermostat will tell you how long it will take to get there, even taking the weather into consideration.

True Radiant

Once it’s learnt your pattern and the time it takes to get to the temperature you like, the True Radiant feature kicks in. Want to make sure it’s warm when you wake up and cosy when you get home? With the Nest Thermostat, it’s no problem.

Can a Nest Thermostat Save Me Money?

Most thermostats can be programmed but it’s not always easy. And can you really be sure you’re being efficient? With the Nest Thermostat, there’s no guessing. Learning from your routine, it sets a schedule that will help save you energy.

7 Nest Thermostat features that can help save energy:

Time-to-Temperature makes sure you don’t overheat your home by learning how fast it heats up and cools down, whatever the weather.

True Radiant takes your Time-to-Temperature and makes sure your heating comes on at the right moment.

Monthly Energy Reports give you personalised energy-saving tips.

Auto-Tune works out ways you can save and then puts them into action for you.

Seasonal Savings makes simple changes to your schedule to help you save more energy.

Nest Leaf helps keep track of your savings. The symbol appears when you’ve made a change that will save energy.

Auto-Away - Don’t heat an empty home. Auto-Away adjusts the temperature after you leave the house

To get the most out of your Nest Thermostat we recommend:

  • Access to a mobile, tablet or laptop with internet access
  • The Nest Thermostat App – available on Apple or Android (not currently available on Windows phone or tablet)
  • A router with a power supply
  • A Wi-Fi code and a working Wi-Fi connection
  • Professional installation

The Nest Thermostat is not suitable if you have:

  • Electric storage heaters as your main heating system
  • Electric under-floor heating

How does the Nest Thermostat learn?

Starting with a default temperature of 20⁰C, the Nest Thermostat tracks your changes and adds it to the schedule. Turn your heat up to 21⁰C at 5pm and down as you go to bed? It will store this information and mirror it the next day – keeping to this pattern until you make more changes.

After a week, it discards one-off temperature changes, works out your pattern and programmes your schedule. Always learning and updating, if you make the same change.

Installing a Nest Thermostat

We highly recommend that your Nest Learning Thermostat is professionally installed. A Nest Pro can carry out your installation safely, without any fuss and help you find the best spot for your Nest Thermostat.

Can I install a Nest Thermostat myself?

It’s highly recommended that your Nest Thermostat is installed by a professional. This will keep you safe and avoid damage, particularly in older homes where wiring and heating isn’t standardised. However, if you want to install it yourself, here’s the Nest guide.

How much does installation cost?

The cost for a Nest Pro or an independent professional installer can vary depending on your heating system. Occasionally installation may require tweaks to your wiring, boiler or heating system, but your Nest Pro will check with you about any costs involved. If your Nest Thermostat won’t work with your wiring, and you don’t want to upgrade, you won’t be charged for the appointment.

Where is the best place to put my Nest Thermostat?

Your Nest Pro installer will help you find the best place for your Nest Thermostat.

The old place - Pop it in the spot of your old thermostat and use the existing wires which are hidden out of sight.

A new place - Find a place on your wall that you can power from a wall socket.

Any place - Whether it’s a bookshelf, desk or table, put it in the best place for you using a Nest Stand (available separately).
