Nest Learning Thermostat - does it need to be set to Heat for Schedules to work?

Community Member

Hi. I recently got the Nest Learning 3rd Gen Thermostat and tried to set the schedule for morning heat to 20 degrees but it didn't come on. Is it because I had the setting on OFF instead of Heat?

If that is the case how do I get the heat to only come on when I want it to instead of maintaining a minimum temp throughout the days? Should I lower the temp set when going to bed and then the schedule will kick in to bring it up to the scheduled temp for the time set in the morning?
