Has a tremendous amount of potential, but can’t recommend in current state I’m an HVAC contractor who’s installed and troubleshooted this product in customer’s homes for the past couple years and experienced the good, the bad, and the ugly. Let’s start with the good.Pros:-It looks great. Personally I don’t really care what my thermostat looks like but I know that is very important to many people and the Nest is unmatched in this area.-When it works, it is hands down the easiest thermostat to install. The ability to sense wires and automatically configure the thermostat is a cool feature you don’t see too often. They have a nifty wizard on their website that where you check the wires you have and it figures out what type of system you have and whether or not it will be compatible. Not that I really care, since this is what I do for a living, but for DIYers who have never done something like this before, it’s nice.-In theory, it can control quite a wide range of HVAC systems, including 4 stages of heating, 2…

Great though not perfect I have had this installed for about 5 months now and here are my big observations:1. It is a piece of digital equipment so it needs a little more care than the average thermostat. For example, it is connected to the internet. As such, if the power goes out and you don’t have an UPS on your router (I don’t) then your ability to read the thermostat remotely (via the phone or internet) won’t work. Another example is that I have had a few (like 1 or 2) times where I have had to completely reprogram the thermostat because of a random reset. Fortunately this is very easy to do and only slightly inconvenient.2. It does save you money. I have seen about a 20% improvement in efficiency in heating and noticeable decrease in electricity usage for AC in the short time that I have had it. It’s not barn burning savings but it is noticeable and should pay for itself in the first year.3. The auto away is better than the learning. We haven’t had the…

Pretty… and….. it’s pretty Lets’ state the obvious. At $250, you’d better have your act together.They Don’t.Google just bought them this week. Let’s hope their DNA and engineers fix what should be a flawless experience.Summary: New furnace bought and installed along with new nest in December. Worked well for 2 weeks the infamous 4.0 update. Then the dreaded under volt errors and low battery warnings and functionality limitation began appearing.The 4.0 update did three things:1. added functionality2. made the nest nearly unfunctional3. destroyed nests reputation in one swift stroke.I have rarely seen worse internet chatter about any, ANY, software/hardware combination than the 4.0 update for nest. Unbelievable. Their discussion boards, independent boards, amazon reviews. wow… a blood bath.Anyway, they pushed a new software update out that seems -I THINK!- to have fixed the battery issue. Time will tell.Finally,…
