How Does the Nest Learning Thermostat Work?

With energy prices constantly rising, keeping track of your heating expenditure has never been so important. For those looking to cut costs and save energy, the Nest Learning Thermostat is a stylish solution that promises a whole new level of heating control.

Smarter than the average thermostat, The Nest Learning Thermostat will think for you on a daily basis. This innovative device learns from you to program itself and uses cutting-edge technology to find ways to reduce your energy consumption.

Like it cosy in the morning but cool at night? Nest will adjust the temperature accordingly. Forgot to turn the heating off? Don't worry Nest already did. So clever it gives us humans a run for our money, the Nest Learning Thermostat is designed to help protect your bank balance and change the way you heat your home.

The Nest thermostat is available both individually and in Baxi & Ideal combination boiler packs from PlumbNation.

No more programming

The Nest Learning Thermostat uses self-programming technology to learn as you heat, calculating what times of the day you prefer it to be warmer or cooler. After just one week, Nest will then create an Auto-Schedule for your home, managing your heating so you no longer have to.

Smart Technology

For those who often forget to turn the heating off, the Auto-Away function is a handy money-saving feature that heats your home efficiently. The built-in motion sensor detects whether or not someone is at home, and tells the thermostat to turn down the temperature when you are away.

By programming your heating in an energy-efficient way, Nest will also use the internet to check the weather forecast preventing overheating on warmer days and working hard to warm up your house on colder days.

Multiple Control Options


With a stainless steel design and sleek digital LCD screen, the Nest Learning Thermostat makes a stylish addition to any home. Tap the screen or spin the wheel controller to adjust the temperature and other settings.

Control it remotely

As the Nest Learning Thermostat is connected to the internet, you have the added luxury of controlling your heating from your smartphone, tablet, or desktop. Whether you are cosy in bed or on the go, you can use the Nest App to adjust your heating and hot water at the touch of a button.

Energy Saving

The more you know, the more you can save. This is why Nest provides you with a history of your energy usage. Use this to help you dial down the temperature, and when you do, you'll be rewarded with the Leaf icon on your LED thermostat screen.

Leaf will challenge you to choose temperatures a little lower than you are used to, and by turning the heat down by just one degree, you could cut your yearly heating bill by up to 5%.
