Nest indoor temperature is wayyy off

Community Member

My new nest Thermostat indoor temperature is extremely off. It is showing and staying at 79-80 degrees when its not even close and probably about 65 degrees in the house. This unit is brand new and not sure what to do? Please help!

I committed on a separate post noting the same thing. I'm experiencing this as well and seeing more posts. I think there may be a bigger issue.

How do you correct it if it’s too high by like 20 degrees. This is “all of the sudden”. Been working for like a year

Have a Nest Thermostat model 1.4. On Software version1.1-11.

Having this same issue all of a sudden..

Inside temperature we know from a different nonsmart thermostat.

Past 2 years were fine..

Not near a heater. 

It is 68 inside, but it is saying it is between 75-78. Wayyyy off. Please help!

I purchased a Nest Learning Thermostat a few months ago and have to set the thermostat at 71 degrees to get the room heat to maintain 68 degrees. I have put a few reference thermometers next to the thermostat and they all read 68 while the Nest reads 71.

When I look at my heating history it shows that I have been keeping my house set to 71 degrees, which is wrong

Model Display=3.7 SW 6.2-27

I see people have been reporting this issue for years with no satisfaction from Nest

Why can't a simple temperature calibration be added to the setup to allow the customer to correct the reading, as can be done on cheap mechanical thermostats ?

All that would be needed is an offset number running from perhaps -5 to +5 degrees. After reading the room temperature , the software could add the offset factor and proceed from there. In my case the number would be set to +3. Problem solved
