Nest Energy-Efficient Thermostat’s Arrive In Canada, Eh

December 5th, 2012 by  

 
One month after Nest’s second-generation thermostat hit the shelves of Best Buy in the US, both Nest’s first- and second-generation products are hitting the Canadian shelves, just in time for old man winter.

According to the company website, Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Amazon.ca will sell the second-generation energy-efficient thermostat for C$249. Amazon.ca will also sell the first generation product for C$199.

Some of the all important features that come with NEST’s thermostat’s include: scheduling a specific time for a specific temperature, heat pump balances, and filter reminders.

Technical support will be available for French and English Canadian customers.

However, the most important part that Canadian customers (like myself) are glad to know, is that the thermostats will work in Celsius.

With success in the US, expect Nest to fly high in Canada, also.
