Thermostat is 4 to 5゚ off

I have the thermostat set at 71゚ and it's maintaining 66 in the house. I can't find anything in the thermostat that will let me recalibrate the sensor.  Can you adjust the calibration of these thermostats?

Hi Junkstat,

 

Thanks for reaching out — we'd love to help you. Restarting the Nest Thermostat can help to re-calibrate its sensor. Visit the settings of your thermostat then select Restart to do it. Also, you can check this out for more options. 

 

Best,

Thanks Jenelyn. I tried this after I posted this. I has helped some but it still seems to be 1 - 2° off. Better than it was.

Hey Junkstat,

 

Great, thanks for letting us know. It might take some time to re-calibrate its sensor. 

 

If the issue persists, you can try to update its software, but it depends on what Nest Thermostat you have. You can check the steps below:

 

  • Nest Thermostat - Go to settings, then look for the word "Version" then select update.
  • Nest Learning Thermostat or Nest  Thermostat E - Go to settings, then look for the word "Software"  then select update.

Best,

I had to restart/reboot the thermostat. It appears to be back to normal. It seems they get a brain fart like all the other electronics you get today and have to be rebooted once in a while.

Hey Junkstat,

 

Thanks for getting back to us and I appreciate the steps you've taken.

 

Restarting your Nest Thermostat can fix several issues, like when the display is stuck, frozen or slow, or if your thermostat has disconnected from Wi-Fi and is offline in the app.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns as we will be locking this thread in the next 24 hours. 

 

Regards,

Jenelyn
