Google Nest Learning Thermostat (Gen 3)

Available in 4 colour ways to best adapt to its new surroundings, the Nest Gen 3 is a sleek and contemporary design.

Capabilities & Features

After just one week of use, the Nest will have learned your standard heating patterns and requirements and is able to independently and efficiently regulate your home’s central heating and hot water management!

The Nest raises property temperature when your home and having detected you’ve left via sensors and smartphone app location, lowers it, known as ‘Eco Temperatures’ mode.

This feature is extremely energy efficient and more than likely will save you money by reducing your outgoing bills.

Due to its integrated intelligent technology, the Nest is flexible in collating data and scheduling your heating; the convenience of being able to remotely control the temperature of your property via smartphone, means you never have to worry about monotonously planning out your week around your boiler.

The Google Nest provides users with a monthly ‘home report’ and ‘energy history’ in a transparent means of sharing its data and validating its performance.

When the temperature is set at an energy saving level, the Nest leaf icon is displayed, encouraging homeowners to continually opt for eco-friendly heat settings.


Currently as an optional extra to any new boiler installation, iHeat offers the choice of having a Google Nest Learning thermostat included in your bundle and to be expertly fitted by a Gas Safe registered engineer (job dependant) for around £265.

This is great value for such a handy tool when it comes to controlling your property’s heat usage and a fantastic energy waste reduction method.

By upgrading to a new, efficient boiler and concurrently adding the boost of a smart thermostat, your home will be comprehensively taken care of when it comes to central heating and hot water.
