Google Nest Thermostat

Community Member


I just bought a Nest to replace an older programmable thermostat. My old one had the fan option to be on all the time. I need to use the fan to keep the basement warmer, especially in the spring, fall and very cold days. Basically I leave the fan on all the time.  

With the Nest Thermostat Snow, Model: Thermostat-1.4, software version 1.1-11, it has no option to leave the fan on or the fan on auto.

After manually setting the fan daily for 12 hours for a few days. I found the fan schedule screen and now have set up the fan to daily. 

My problem is the fan schedule screen has no scroll option on Android. I have no idea what is at the bottom for the Fan Duration( each hour). Can I get a picture of the full screen or tge 4 options?

To get to fan schedule on the Google nest:

Select Thermostat setting

Select Shedule

From the Schedule page's drop down menu select Fan. Default is Temperature. 

Select Run everyday 

Select start time

Select end time

Fan Duration(each hour) - what are the 4 options?

Thanks for the help,

Hello Agnes,

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your inquiry.

Please make sure that the Google Home app is up to date. You can try uninstalling and reinstalling it to ensure it gets an update. Also, I did find a helpful article about Fan control with a Nest Thermostat. Let us know if that helps.

Hi Mark,

On a newer tablet I was able to see the 4 Fan Duration options. That was my inquiry.

The 4 options from left to right are: 15 min, 30 min, 45 min. 60 min.

Thanks for the reply.

Hello there,

I'm sorry for the delayed response. I wanted to ensure that everything was covered here.

I appreciate you sharing the Fan settings. How's it going so far? What will happen based on the screenshot is that the fan will run most of the time, but there will be a tendency for it to automatically turn off when the thermostat no longer needs the fan in order to sustain temperature. However, it should automatically turn on itself again when the temperature isn't efficient enough to sustain it.

Let me know if you have more questions.


Hi Agnes,
