All great Edmonton electricians will agree that one of the major drawbacks or cons of the Nest thermostat is that it requires a common wire running to your furnace. What this means is that a typical thermostat will operate as if it is a temperature actuated light switch. typical thermostat to will only require two wires. The Nest smart thermostat will require at least three wires for standard heating two wires will control the heating and the third wire will provide constant power for the thermostat. The Nest Thermostat require a constant power because it needs to still function while the heating circuit is open. Sometimes you will find that if you install a Nest thermostat it will work without a common wire.

You will likely find that it will die out in the spring or summer months when your heating circuit is not engaged and your thermostat is not receiving power.
