      This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

      With its classic eye catching design the Google Nest Learning Thermostat learns the temperature that you like, then programs itself. It even turns itself down when you’re away. So you save energy and stay comfortable. Designed to be compatible with many different types of heating systems, this latest version can also be used to control your hot water tank.

      The Google Nest thermostat learns your what you like and creates a schedule for your home, all you have to do is turn it up and down for a week and Google Nest will programme itself, turning the heat up and down to suit your schedule - learning when you go to bed and when you get up and the temperature you like! It uses its sensors to adjust the heat just in time to reach the temperature you want and learns how long it takes to heat your home. Using sensors and your phone Google Nest knows when you are away and will turn down the heat accordingly.

      Visually appealing, the Google Nest Thermostat has a large, sharp display with Farsight which will detect you when you are across the room and will light up to show you the time or temperature you've set.

      Using your mobile phone, tablet or laptop you can control your hot water and heating remotely and using the handy Google Nest APP you can track your energy consumption over the month and receive suggestions as to how you can save energy.

      The Google Nest Thermostat can be used with other Google Nest products, including the Google Nest Protect Alarms to shut off your boiler when smoke or carbon monoxide is detected and the Nest Cameras to turn streaming on or off when you manually set your thermostat to Home or Away mode.

      Features at a glance:

      AutoSchedule - Just turn it up and down. It learns the temperatures you like and creates a schedule for you.

      Eco Temperatures - It won't heat an empty home.

      Hot water - Now you can control your hot water tank. And give your hot water a boost when you need it.

      Advanced modulation - The Google Nest Thermostat now uses OpenTherm technology to modulate your compatible, high efficiency condensing boiler. So you save even more energy.

      Remote control - Change the temperature and control your hot water tank from anywhere using your mobile, tablet or laptop.

      Farsight - It lights up when it sees you coming and shows you the time or the temperature you’ve set from across the room.

The main screen used to illuminate with the changes when you used the app. But 1 month in and the main screen doesn't illuminate anymore unless you manually adjust it.Although, I must add: no appliance in my house is 'smart' so maybe there's positives to linking more of these up. But for me I should have stuck with a standard stat. I only hope it adds value to the house when I sell it; because the only uses I have are:- Can be lazy and change the temperature without having to stand up with my phone.- Google give me fake reward leafs; or feel good points; for not using the nest heating. (Very competetive)- As my working hours are all over the place; I can turn the stat on 30 mins before I get home and be a little more efficient. (If I remember... I'm usually too busy trying to beat the M60/M56/M62/M6/A1).


      I can add to that. I can check what temperature the Mrs is setting the heating to while I’m out of the country and set a pin protected maximum temperature if I think she’s exceeding reasonable levels

      Q - please
      I have a hot water and heating programming timer in the kitchen that sets off and on times and a programmable heating thermostat (battery powered) in the hall - can I replace them with this. Looked at the guides and compatiblity charts and I'm confused.

      Yeah absolutely. The heat link will replace your timer and the nest itself can go anywhere in the house as long as you can provide power from a socket or power it from the heat link.

      You probably can. Is there a control wire running from you battery powered thermostat in the hall? Or does it send commands wirelessly.

      My set up was similar by the sounds of it. I had a battery powered thermo, which sent command to the boiler with a control wire in the walls. I changed the control wire to send power to the nest unit as it does need power, but sends commands wirelessly (the opposite to your existing thermo)

      This version of the nest has a control box by the boiler that does all the switching. The termo sends it commands wireless and just needs power. You could just buy a stand and plug it in wherever you like.

      Does anybody know the difference between this one T3028gb and the other one on the website that is more money the T3010gb ?
      Regards
      This is a fantastic piece of kit. Had for nearly 2 years now, cannot fault it at all. Nice modern simplistic design and great app. Loads of features and can use google home/alexa to set the temperature. Only downside I see is you cannot ask google home/alexa to set the hot water. Otherthan that no issues at all.

      The thermo in the hall is battery powered and wired back to somewhere, it replaced an old fashioned thermostat dial and now does all the timing and temperature of heating . Heating is perm on at the controller in the kitchen. That kitchen controller sets hot water timings too, it's deffo not wireless.

      I really wanted one of these but I have honeywell smartfit system which is not a standard fitments and thus this does not easily replace it. Something for people to consider before buying even with professional installation

      Oh yes! Haha. Maybe I was too critical on my prior evaluation.
      The best thing about these is being able to warm the house up early if you're on your way home, especially from an extended break (e.g. Christmas) when the house is very cold.

      Seek out the instructions online and you'll see what wiring is involved. Also look at instructions for your boiler. Chances are if everything is already wired up it's just a case of pulling the wires from what's already there and hooking them up to the Nest, making sure to put the correct ones in the correct places lol. If your boiler supports Opentherm I'd suggest wiring with that instead.

      Cheers. Pretty confident its going to be a matter of switching the current one put from British gas.

      I might get back to you on it!
      Installed mine about three years ago and it worked fine until Nest decided to roll out "ECO" mode which basically labotomized it.
      The thermostat used to automatically switch to away mode when I left and figure out when I was likely to be coming home and start warming the house in advance. Now if I have "ECO" mode engaged it cools down when I leave and won't start warming up until I'm actually through the door. Fantastic in winter!
      I gave up and disabled "ECO" mode so I could program it with a fixed schedule. Now it's little more than a web controlled programmable thermostat.
      Anyone have a rough idea how much installation is for this? My house runs on oil and has an old wired thermostat
      Had my nest just under 1 year and it broke, thankfully they replaced it under the 2yr warranty at nest, if i had the choice/funds id go for something different, now google took over nest they is no IFTTT support 😳

      This. 100%. Maybe we are using it wrong ? Surely if it's as crap as we are thinking it is; it wouldn't be so popular ?

      I'd be delighted to be using it wrong (possibly I am but doesn't seem so). I live in a house built in 1911 which cools down fairly fast without heating in the winter even with double glazing and loft insulation. I'm guessing the level of insulation in modern houses would make it less of an issue?

      My gas bill dropped £15 a month , has yours not gone down? Mine has already covered the cost of the nest and install. Maybe you have a faulty one, mine got changed as the tracking didn’t work properly . Was a nest issue not my phones.

      £40 you can get them for if it’s a straight swap. Go down the list in the app of installers . Some will be as high as £80, keep trying I found one for £40.

      I only installed it around April so my savings to date are all bias with the season. That and i changed my boiler at the same time so im not sure if i could identify any savings directly for it. Thats an encouraging figure though!

      When it was 'learning' my house it used to put the heating on for fun. Although I put this down to operator error.

      Yes it takes about 2 weeks to get used to your routine but I ended up turning all that off and just setting the times I want it on and off.

      I didn’t change boiler or gas supplier and my bills dropped around £15 after 3 months meter reading. Even with summer winter etc they still work out the 12 months average usage. Your new boiler will be what stops you working it out, you won’t know if the boiler is saving you which it will if the one it replaced was very old anyway or the thermostat
      Word of warning... Paid extra £7 for next day delivery by FedEx... I had to chase 2 days later... Now coming tomorrow to work address that is shut... Via Royal Mail so can't be changed... No offer to pay me back yet. Good price but just go with Amazon for the extra £10ish!
