We teach you how to add a common C wire to the Nest Thermostat if you are having low power issues with your Nest Smart Thermostat a common wire will most likely solve your issue. The Common wire or C wire is used to provide constant power to your nest thermostat. Adding a C wire to the Nest will help maximize the thermostat performance and solve most power sharing issues you might experience with the Nest. Not all HVAC systems require the Nest to have a common wire but some do and you typically won’t know if your HVAC system requires a common wire until your Nest Thermostat is already connected.
