What is the best thermostat for central heating on the market to recommend
The best thermostat to have on the market at present in Martin’s opinion and the opinion of most gas safe engineers in our group would be the Nest room thermostat.
Why is Nest the most recommended thermostat by fellow gas engineers
The Nest thermostat is most recommended by fellow gas engineers because it learns when you best want the central heating on and off, saving your energy costs when you least need it. It has it’s own Nest thermostat App so that you can turn it on or off as you pleased. You can also have multiple zones for turning either upstairs or downstair on or off but can also be zoned from 1 to every bedroom if you are prepared to buy more than just one or two thermostats.
How much can the Nest thermostat save me on my central heating bill per year
As mentioned in the introduction to this page, the Nest thermostatic based on a 3-bedroom house should save you about £334 per year/annum if used correctly.
Can I control the Nest thermostat from my phone
Nest thermostat has the latest technology that has the capability to connect to the wifi, meaning once you have completed your account, you can then connect it to your phone and control you central heating, it sound complicated but more easier than you think. Once you start to use it, you will most likely fall in love with the product and unfortunately it becomes an addiction, but is that a bad thing, I think not.
Can I control each room in the house with the nest thermostat
If your buying the Nest room thermostat on its own, then you will not be able to control each room on its own as it will only be functional for the one area such as your living room where it detects the temperature like most thermostats are like today for the whole house. If you buy more than one Nest thermostat, then you can start to zone the areas in your home and yes you can then control rooms by each zone giving you more control and saving you even further energy bills.
Can anyone fit the Nest thermostat
It is strongly advised that you look for a Nest room thermostat fitting service that you contact a company that has been trained in fitting the product. In fitting the product yourself, you may be me breaking some valuable safety issues as mentioned in the gas safe industry and will most likely void your guarantee with the Nest room thermostat manufactures.

In some house such as a 5-bedroom house, you should see a return just after the first year unless you start to zone each area, then you may have to individually have to calculated the savings. Within 5-years, we believe that you will be saving about an estimated £1000 and maybe more considering the market for energy is going up all of the time.

Nest Room Thermostat Problems & Cures – My Nest Thermostat has stopped work or I can connect it up.
This is an update to the article Nest room thermostat fitting service. I (Martin Smith) personally went out to deal with a faulty Nest room thermostat for the first time on Saturday 7th February for some hand on experience and yes like most engineers fitting them for the first time, I could get it working but that is because I missed out some simply instruction that I could seem to find but also with no help from a technician that was also Nest qualified. What the next paragraph is about, is to try and help those in a similar situation.
Nest Thermostat won’t connect to the heat link
In the house Martin Smith went to where the Nest room thermostat had a problem with the heat link disconnecting itself, but then not connecting was due to 2 factors. The first factor was interference as the heat link was too close (30cm minimum) to the boiler and the possibly that there was arial wiring in the same cupboard causing interference. However when trying to connect, between myself and the customer, we must of spent 2-hours each trying to get it working which included 1-hour trying to connect a new one with no success.
The problem we found out is that the thermostat won’t connect if it was not on it’s base which we had been doing all the time. Once you have tried to connect it up well it’s not on the base and you try to connect it when you put it back on the base, then it simple won’t connect.
What you need to do is, connect the Nest room thermostat to the internet and reset from factory setting and try setting up again but you must make sure the Nest room thermostat is connected onto it base.
