Heater only has R/W1 wires, will nest power adapter still work?

my best thermostat needs a c wire, and currently only two wires are being run from my heater: R and W1. Will the best power adapter work with only these two wires?

Hello AndreK

The best way to figure out if a Nest Thermostat will work with your existing System is the
Compatibility Ceck
This tool will ask you for the existing wires and recommends the Thermostat you can use.
In your case it is important to know what kind of system you have.
You can get help on this if you use the Compatibility Check.

I do not have a c wire either and the nest learning 3rd gen thermostat works for me
