The Nest thermostat now has the ability to warn users about potential issues with an air conditioner or furnace. Google is testing the new feature that looks for irregular patterns in an HVAC system. The Nest thermostat will then determine if heating or cooling times are too long, and it can then notify the user through email. Nest thermostat owners in either Atlanta, Boston, Denver, Las Vegas or San Diego, could also have the ability to notify a professional through the system.
Overall the new feature could streamline fixing an air conditioner or furnace through detection to contacting a professional service. Additionally, it could save Nest thermostat owners money, as they would detect irregular patterns much sooner.
