How to tell which thermostat you have

Note: Savings Finder is not available for the Nest Thermostat E or Nest Learning Thermostat.

Right after installation, it will take a few days for your thermostat to learn about your system’s efficiency, your home, and your schedule. You’ll get a notification on when your thermostat can use Savings Finder. An event will also appear as a priority event in the Home app’s Feed .

Once you enable Savings Finder, you’ll continue to receive energy-saving suggestions to adjust your thermostat’s temperatures in the Home app.
