Seeing dual stage HVAC operation in Nest App

Community Member

Hello, I have installed a dual-stage HVAC system in new construction, connected to a Nest Learning Thermostat.  The system is running without issues.  I wanted to find out if there is somewhere in the Nest iOS app where you can see whether the HVAC system is currently operating on the lower or higher stage, both for current operation and also in history.

When I look at the history detail for a specific day, the individual bars seem to be lighter than normal, which has me guessing that it could be indicating lower stage usage, but I don't know for sure.  I haven't seen anything on the main thermostat screen indicating the stage in operation.

Any info or insights?  Thanks

Hello MCP,


Thanks for posting here in the Community. For Nest thermostat temperature history, both on the Nest app and on the Nest thermostat display, it will show you the temperature that you used for that day and the duration, but it doesn’t indicate if it’s using your second-stage heating or cooling. But if your system is currently using second-stage cooling or heating, it will show second-stage cooling on top of the current temperature on the Nest thermostat display. 

Let me know if you have additional questions.
