    I think the idea behind "airwave" is a some sort of blower delay to get the residual cooling out of the ductwork. Most furnaces have a blower delay built in, not sure how useful this feature is.. Running a 500W or so blower for more than a 2 minutes after the compressor shuts off doesn't accomplish anything other than to raise the humidity.

    As far as I know Nest has not released any information on the algorithm for the humidity compensation.

    Perhaps with future software updates on the Nest thermostat they will include more uses. They added airwave already. Using the AUX as a humidifier or Dehumid output would be cool. Most thermostats with humidity sensors built in can do this.

    Nest thermostat is very good, I have been using it for half a year already and I am very pleased, even after reading the characteristics you can understand that this is an excellent thermostat for a smart home.
    Nest introduces the 3rd generation Nest Learning Thermostat. With four beautiful colors to choose from and an easy to read display, this thermostat will help make your home not only smart but energy efficient. With just a few manual adjustments, the Nest Thermostat can learn your habits and start to save you money by automatically adjusting the temperature. The Nest Thermostat does something new. It’s called Farsight, and it lights up to show you the temperature, weather or time. You can even choose a digital or analog clock face. Farsight is big and bright on the beautiful display – you can see it from across the room. The Nest Learning Thermostat now comes in four fantastic colors; Copper, Stainless Steel, Black, and White. Choose copper to add a warm touch. Stainless steel is perfect for a classic, versatile look. Black blends in with dark walls and stylish decor. And white looks great in simple, modern homes. Nest has worked hard to design thoughtful devices to help keep you safe and secure. Nest devices not only communicate with each other but also with the other smart devices around your home. Your Nest Secure can use your smart light bulbs to help get your attention in the event of an emergency; your smart washer and dryer can take the data from Nest and run the next load of laundry when energy demand is low. Look for the Works with Nest badge and let Nest handle the rest. We love home. It’s the best place in the world. But not everything inside our homes is lovable. Some things beep at us; fail without warning; keep us in the dark. There are things we’ve learned to ignore. We think these things should do more. Nest is focused on making simple, human, delightful things. That’s how we’re creating the thoughtful home: A home that takes care of the people inside it and the world around it. The Nest Learning Thermostat works with 95% of 24V heating and cooling systems, including gas, electric, forced air, heat pump, radiant, oil, hot water, solar and geothermal.
