Meet the Nest Thermostat
Meet the Google Nest Thermostat, the helpful thermostat with a cozy price. It can turn itself down to save energy when you leave the house. 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.
Control From Anywhere
You can change the temperature, adjust your schedule, and more from the free Google Home app.*
*Remote control and mobile notifications require working internet and Wi-Fi.
The Nest Thermostat can use sensors (sold separately) and your phone’s location to check if you’ve left the house. Then it can set itself to an Eco temperature to save energy.
HVAC monitoring looks out for many heating and cooling system issues. If something doesn’t seem right, your thermostat can send you an alert.* If you need to replace your air filter, you’ll get a reminder. And you can book a visit with a Nest Pro right from the alert.
*Google provides alerts to notify you of a potential issue with your HVAC system. Our goal is to provide helpful information, but Google makes no endorsement, representation, or warranty of any kind about the health of your HVAC system. Alerts aren’t intended to replace a diagnosis by a qualified HVAC professional.
The Nest Thermostat comes with Quick Schedule. When you set up your new thermostat, you can easily customize your schedule. And you can always adjust it from the Google Home app.

What's a C-Wire?
The Google Nest Thermostat is designed to work without a C-wire. However, in some cases, a C-wire may be needed.
A C-wire (common wire) is a low voltage power wire that many modern thermostats require for their features to work. Many older homes don’t have a C-wire because mercury and battery-powered thermostats didn’t require one.
The Nest Thermostat works with most 24V heating and cooling systems, including furnaces, air conditioners, boilers, and heat pumps with either forced air or radiant delivery.
It works with conventional systems that have one stage of heating and cooling and a second stage of either heating or cooling. It works with heat pumps that have one stage of heating and cooling and either aux or emergency heat. And it works with HVAC fans.
The Nest Thermostat is designed to work if your home doesn’t have a common (“C”) wire. In some cases, particularly if you have a heating- or cooling-only system or use a zone controller, a C wire or other power-supply accessory may be necessary.
