Energy History Report Colors

Hello, on the Energy History report using the Nest  App, when the details of heat used on a single day is opened; there are dark orange sections and light orange sections.
What do these represent? Do the dark orange sections represent Emergency Heat?

The different orange colors represent Stage 1 heat and Stage 2 heat if you have a 2-stage furnace.  I have a conventional gas 2-stage furnace, and the darker orange bars indicate Stage 2 heat.

If you have a heat pump system with Aux or Emergency Heat, the darker orange probably represents Aux or Emergency heating.

on my app there is only one color of orange.  The solid orange bar represents the total time the nest called for heat for a 24 hour day.  If you click to expand that bar it shows the pattern and duration of each on/off cycle for the heater during that day.  i hope that helps.
