Yeah.

I thought they'd use it towards the purchase of the €400 Nest package, but they didn't.

If I sign up for electric ireland and get a nest for €130 and €200 cash back, can I then book a boiler service with another nest for €200 and have them both installed at the same time?

Not unless you get their smart controls for your electric immersion (if you gave one). My immersion wasn't compatible but they did fit a meter to it, which shiws very low use of electricity, I leave it on most of the time

Nest has this option yes - once your boiler/system is able to do so.

Is the cashback just in the form of money off your bill?

Yes.
You can't use the €200 credit towards buying a Nest.

Looking to get an automated valve to heat hot water only via the nest. Has anyone had this done? If anyone knows any plumbers that serve Limerick that can do this with NEST I would be much obliged.

Now we have a nest thermostat for downstairs and another heatmiser thermostat upstairs. The nest thermostat would not control hot water though, as its always on with Air to water heating.
I'm planning to install another one upstairs soon.

So the general rule of thumb: one nest can only control one zone.
If you have two zones you could assign nest to one of the zones and keep another thermostat for other zone.
Did electric Ireland have any issue with this? They’re telling me they won’t install with heat pumps

I just switched to EI, I asked about this and they said that the €200 would be applied to my account and that would go towards the first bill, with any change left carried over towards the next one. The sales guy also highlighted that I could have the cost of the nest install added to my first bill so I'd effectively be paying for the nest with the 200

Interesting - that must be new then as they told me when I ordered a few months back that I couldn't do that.

Last year the nest was completely free with 175€ credit added

Hi, I'm recently after moving to electric Ireland,

Currently I have one controller which has two thermostats connected (one for upstairs and one for downstairs).

Do I need two nest devices ? Is there a way to avoid paying 400 euros ?

Need two Nests.

Not sure there's a way to avoid it - one poster mentioned using credit on your account to pay for it, hence using the 200 euro bonus credit.

400euro for two nests, including installation and two free Google Homes is great value.

You could try ordering one nest via phoning them and then order the second one online with different installation dates.

I tried this when I had mine installed back in March/April, however when they installed the first nest it turns out I didn't need the second one and rang them up and cancelled it and got a refund. But up to that point I paid €260 for the two, not €400.
