I found if I set eco mode to a temperature I want to hold, example 68, this is the easiest way to hold a specific temperature. Kind of using eco mode as a hold. Then shut off hold when you want to go back to your schedule. It would be nice if they added hold that worked just like eco mode but called it hold temp. Hope this helps someone.
Thanks for reaching out. I'd love to know more about this.
Could you tell us what type of Nest Thermostat you have? Also, creating a schedule for temperature might help, so you can set your desired temperature at a specific time regardless of how long you would want to maintain it.
Please take a look at this article and let us know if you need more help.
Yes I created a schedule thats the point when you have a schedule and say someone older comes to visit you don’t want to change the schedule just for them. So you want to hold a temperature like 76 for a couple of days while they visit. What I did wad use the eco temp to do just that. I was just saying the unit should have an option to override the schedule and hold a temperature. I did that by setting eco to 76 and then turning on eco mode. That held the temperature while they visited, then when they left I shut off eco and it went back to my schedule. I then put eco temp back to an eco temperature. I am saying you should have a hold temperature feature that overrides the schedule that is all. I achieved this by using eco mode at a non eco temperature.
