At the turn of the twentieth century, our ancestors could only have imagined the technology available to us today. Supercomputers that fit in our pockets, the internet, and voice-activated control over our home’s appliances could only be imagined in our great grandparent’s wildest dreams.

But here and now, in the twenty-first century, we are fortunate to have these technologies readily available at the tips of our fingers. 

Of all these conveniences we are afforded by modern technology, one of the most convenient is controlling our smart household appliances by voice with products like Google Home.

In addition to controlling refrigerators, ovens, and washing machines, one of the best things that Google Home can do is sync with your home’s smart thermostat to easily and efficiently control your home’s heat. 

Benefits of Google Home Compatible Thermostats

Google home allows you to conveniently access, monitor, and control all of your home’s smart appliances from your phone with a swipe of your finger. 

By pairing your compatible thermostat with Google Home, you can control your home’s heat from the road or the office, and increase efficiency while maximizing comfort.

  • Adjust the temperature while you’re out of the house.
  • Monitor your home’s heat when you’re away.
  • Get updates and learn when and why your home operates at peak efficiency.

Top Google Home Compatible Thermostats

Although many Google Home-compatible thermostats are available today, three in particular stand above the rest:

1. 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat from Warmup

Warmup’s 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat is at the top of its class for Google Home-compatible electric underfloor heating thermostats.

What Setting Should You Leave Your Heat on When Away From Home?

Using innovative SmartGeo technology, this advanced thermostat intuitively turns your heat down when you leave the house, and back up when you’re on your way home.

Additionally, Advanced Early Start functionality utilizes your local weather report to turn your heat on and off at precisely the right time for the most efficient heating possible.

The 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat does require programming, and when paired with a Warmup underfloor heating system, it can save you up to 25% on your energy bills.

Easy to use and easy to install, combining the 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat with Google Home creates an unstoppable, ultramodern energy-efficient heating system.

2. Google Nest Thermostat

Google Nest is an ultra-simplistic, sleekly designed thermostat engineered around user-friendly design. 

While it doesn’t boast all of the innovative features of the 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat, you can easily control the Nest with a swipe of your finger while you’re out of the house when connected with Google Home. 

Easily installed, the Google Nest is a good, base-level thermostat for users who don’t need the cutting-edge functionality of the 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat, but still want a thermostat to get the job done.

While there is much to like about Google Nest thermostats, there are a few significant downsides:

  • Google Nest cannot control all types of electric underfloor heating systems.
    • If you currently utilize or plan on installing an electric underfloor heating system, like one from Warmup, consider implementing the 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat instead.
  • Google Nest can only control one heating system.
    • If you use electric radiant floor heating as a supplemental heat source in your home, you will need to have two thermostats; one to control your primary heat source and one to control your supplemental heat.

3. Nest E Thermostat

The older version of the new Google Nest Thermostat, the Nest E, is very similar to its more modern counterpart.

The Nest E shares similar aesthetics and displays as the Nest and offers similar functionality.

If you want to take your home’s electric underfloor heating efficiency to the next level, upgrade to Warmup’s 6iE Smart WiFi Thermostat.

Use the Same Smart Thermostat for Radiant Floor Heating as Google Home

Nest thermostats cannot control all electric radiant floor heating systems, and you can only set them to control one heating system. If you use electric radiant floor heat as a supplemental heating system, you will need an additional thermostat to control it.
