Nest Thermostat Now Shipping to Canada

PALO ALTO, Calif. — The Nest® Learning Thermostat™, developed by Tony Fadell, who led the creation of 18 generations of iPod and three generations of iPhone, is now being shipped to Canada.

According to Natural Resources Canada, heating and cooling accounts for 64 percent of the average Canadian household energy bill. Use of the Nest is said to provide a noticeable reduction in energy consumption by addressing the thermostat programming difficulty users can face through a combination of sensors, algorithms, machine learning, and cloud computing. Ninety-nine percent of Nest thermostats have a schedule that matches their owners’ lifestyle, helping to save energy and money, says the company.

Since its launch in October 2011, Nest has earned positive reviews and more than 15 awards — from Good Housekeeping’s VIP award to CNET’s five-star rating.

Canadians can purchase a Nest Learning Thermostat at nest.com/store for $249 USD, plus shipping. Nest also offers professional installation through the Nest Concierge program for $119 USD for the first unit and $25 USD for each additional unit. For more information, visit www.nest.com.
