Cellulose Insulation vs. Fiberglass Insulation

5 ways to tell if your home needs better insulation

Unusually high energy costs

Drafty rooms and uneven temperatures

Cold floors and walls in the winter.

Mould in the basement

Ice dams or snow melting on your roof

For something as important as fire safety, you want a smoke alarm you can trust and rely on. That’s what you get with the battery-operated Google Nest Protect. This advanced smart device can distinguish between levels of urgency in smoke and CO levels, and sends you alerts on your smartphone immediately upon detection so you can take action right away.

The alarm goes off and your mind starts to race.

Where’s the problem? Is it smoke? CO? Burnt toast?

See how it works!

It’s time to expect more from your smoke alarm.

Nest Protect has been redesigned from the inside out. It has a Split‑Spectrum Sensor, tests itself automatically and lasts up to a decade. It’s also the first home alarm you can hush from your phone without any extra hardware required. And it tells you what’s wrong and can even alert your phone.
The smoke alarm that other alarms look up to.
Thinks before it speaks.
Nest Protect has a friendly human voice that gives you an early warning. That way you can handle burning toast before it becomes a burning toaster.
Tells you where the danger is.

Sees both fast and slow-burning fires.

The foam and particle board in much of today’s furniture make fires burn faster. Technology should keep up. The Split‑Spectrum Sensor uses two wavelengths of light to detect smoke from both fast-burning and smouldering fires.

10-year CO sensor.

Carbon monoxide is poisonous, but you can’t see it or smell it. That’s why Nest Protect has a long-lasting carbon monoxide sensor that keeps working for up to a decade.

Count sheep, not chirps.

No one should be woken up by a low-battery chirp at 2 a.m. When you turn off the lights, look for a quick green glow. That’s our Nightly Promise. It means all your Nest Protects have tested themselves, the batteries are good, and there won’t be any chirps. Sweet dreams.

Look for the light ring.

In addition to its voice, Nest Protect uses colours to communicate. And we’ve given the new Nest Protect a brighter light ring so it’s easier to see in an emergency and better at helping you see things in the dark.
