Why does my heating turn on at midday for no reason? 0 Recommended Answers 21 Replies 2 Upvotes
Last edited 16 hr ago
I have a nest learning thermostat which was recently installed and it constantly brings the heating on when i don't want it to. I work from home a lot and don't want the heating on as i use a separate heater in the room i work in rather than heat the whole house. Despite my best efforts to constantly turn the heating off while at home it doesn't seem to learn this and keeps bringing the heating back on. I've tried turning off home away assist for my phone but the heating is then always off which is also not what i want! I've turned off the learning schedule in the hope it would just run the schedule set up and it generally speaking does this EXCEPT it turns the heating on at midday every day. I've reset the schedule and there are no entries for midday but it still comes on at midday every day. Looking in history it just says 'set by nest app' at the point the heating came on.
My understanding is that with home/away assist switched on the thermostat should run to it's schedule if someone is home. The schedule is to be off between 8.30am and 3.30pm and true radiant is set to a maximum of 1 hour so the earliest it should be coming on is 2.30pm. Auto schedule is off so it shouldn't decide for itself that the heating should switch on so what is causing this? Any tips would be very much appreciated. Despite the huge amount of information online about how these gadgets work it's actually extremely difficult to establish which function takes priority over other functions. A simple flow of how the functions interact would be most helpful!
I'm close to switching all of this off and just using it as a very expensive standard programmable thermostat which seems like a complete waste of time. This was meant to be money saving but it's costing me a fortune every time it decides to switch back on for no reason! I'm sure these things are great if you have a very routine daily schedule but it seems, unless i'm missing something, that they're completely useless and cost you a lot more money if your daily routine is unpredictable. HELP!
