Hi Mike, thanks for your question!
Our heater can work with a Nest thermostat, but not right out of the box.
Our heaters require a line voltage control and the Nest is a low voltage control designed to work with central heating and cooling systems.

Hi Mike, thanks for your question!

Our heaters require a line voltage control and the Nest is a low voltage control designed to work with central heating and cooling systems.
In order for our heaters to be compatible with a smart thermostat like the Nest, you will need to install a 3 wire relay with transformer. We recommend the Aube RC840T-120 for the 120 volt heater.
Below is the instruction manual for the relay to help you with this configuration. Keep in mind that you will be able to use your Nest for heat only, no cooling, and you will need a separate thermostat for each zone in your home that you are heating.

Answer: 
You don't. If you are looking for a plug in, secondary heat unit, you need to buy one specific for the space to be safe. My partner is a firefighter and I have seen too many fire caused by people trying to adapt hard wire heaters into a plug style. Better to be safe than sorry.

How many heaters can I run off a 15 amp fuse? How many off a 20 amp fuse?

Is there a formula I can use to calculate the number of heaters vs. the fuse amp needed. Since these units are hardwired I am worried that I could over power with a 20 amp fuse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good quality, nice heat output, made in USA I purchased this 30in unit to replace an incorrectly installed 220 V unit the previous homeowner installed on a 120 V circuit. I purchased a white 30" 750W unit. It puts out nice heat output. I wired a thermostat to the endplate of the unit, so it is the only one on the circuit. The paint/powdercoat is very thick and durable, and the metal seems very rigid and thick. This was not available in my store, so it was drop shipped from the manufacturer. The shipping packaging was very poor (4 "L" shaped cardboard pieces straped to the factory box) but arrived in perfect shape. The heater did make some noise and odor the first few heat cycles.
