How is Nest powered?

Without a C-wire, the Nest gets its power from your heating or cooling system… assuming it's running. When it's not running, the Nest still needs to get power. The Nest will “pulse” the heat wire, turning on the furnace to pull a bit of power to keep itself going.

If so, then you've come to the right place. There are several reasons why your HVAC thermostat keeps changing temperature on its own, but the most likely cause is you have it in program mode. The 'hold' button is present and will hold that temperature until manually changed, or if the 'run' button is pushed.
