The guy that installed mine a few weeks ago said he was doing installs in Orleans at that point so they have done some out your way

I got an email mid December that I was off the waiting list and on the offical list of people that Greenon was going to contact ( email did not state when I would be contacted ) no one called so I called them myself yesterday and only waited 2 mins on hold. Made an appointment for Today and they came to install it on time. Chose the ecobee and took maybe 15 mins from start to finish. I have 5 furnaces in my house I.e I need 5 thermostats but they only replaced one, kind of defeats the purpose if only 1 out of 5 is replaced but better than nothing. For anyone contemplating between the ecobee and nest thermostats get the ecobee and pair with a room sensor. For anyone that has a humidifier that you control directly from your old thermostat; it should be noted that the ecobee 3lite that is supplied will not support controlling the humidifier through the thermostat. Only the ecobee 3 and ecobee 4 support humidifier control directly from the thermostat.
This will not apply to 95% of people but for those that do keep this in mind. The service tech said that out of hundreds that he has installed he has never seen a humidifier that is controlled directly by the thermostat.
Does the nest allow you to control your humidifier through your thermostat?

Thanks called and booked for ottawa this Saturday morning. Said they would call if they can’t come due to the possible snow storm heading our way and reschedule me.

Edit: he verified that I had indeed first got the email moving me onto the install list as he said a lot of people are trying to jump the line.

Did anyone get the peaksaver thermostat replaced under this program? Should I install my old dumb thermostat, or leave the peaksaver for them to take?

Thanks for the number. I'm from Kanata (K2W) and I just called. They said they're not installing in my area yet but will be in the next few weeks.

No. Neither of the "budget" models support accessories like a humidifier.

From my research, you'd be better off buying a separate digital humidistat anyway.

No it does not appear to do so. The thermostats which are being supplied are to be considered the bare-bones models

I ended up calling the number on my email, got re-directed to another number. Couldn't make an appointment cause no installers in the area at the moment. N4B postal code.

Edit: The best he said they could do was call me when someone is in the area. Im about 45 min from kitchener.
