We don't have central air & use our Nest thermostat to control our natural gas furnace (October through April or May). If I understand Rush Hour Rewards correctly since we are using a natural gas furnace the rewards program won't help us because "you’ll need an electric heating system that’s controlled by a Nest thermostat such as a heat pump or...."
Is my conclusion correct?
Hi @Scottinroch ,
I have some more info on that from Learn about Rush Hour Rewards - Android - Google Nest Help . I have natural gas heat but my provider isn't participating. See list here.
|We originally created the Rush Hour Rewards program to
help alleviate electricity demands during heat waves in
the summer. Because it was so successful, we’ve
expanded Rush Hour Rewards to work for natural gas as
well as the winter season, so more people can get
rewards. Now Nest thermostat owners can participate in
Winter Rush Hour Rewards and Summer Rush Hour
Rewards to earn rewards from their energy company
year round. Winter and Summer Rush Hour Rewards
are separate programs, so some energy companies will offer
both, while others may offer only one.
