Home Automation Manufacturers Respond to Nest Malfunction Leaving Users in the Cold

When Julie Jacobson asked Jon Fischer if Aprilaire had faced similar issues as the Nest freeze, he gave her a list of the top 6 things to look for when purchasing thermostats.


  1. Designed and manufactured by an HVAC company
  2. Has a common wire: A thermostat with a C-wire (or common wire) does not rely on batteries being charged, but is powered via 24 volts.
  3. Stand-alone operation: First and foremost, a thermostat needs to control the HVAC system. When a firmware upgrade is pushed to update a thermostat, you should ensure no changes will be made to how the thermostat controls the heating and cooling system.
  4. Works with all control companies: if or when you do change manufacturers it can be easier and less expensive for the end user if you find a thermostat that works with all or most control systems. [Aimed directly at dealers, obviously]
  5. Local internet communication: Find a thermostat that communicates directly to your automation system.
  6. Automatic humidity control: Automatic humidity control monitors the outside temperature and adjusts indoor humidity levels to prevent condensation on windows and other harmful effects of too much moisture.
