Top Nest Thermostat Installation related questions

Nest thermostats are designed to help homeowners to save more money on electricity bills and make it easier for them to maintain a well-regulated indoor temperature. Even if you're not around, you can conveniently adjust your home's temperature from your smartphone. Nest thermostats also feature an Eco setting, which automatically turns the heating system to its most efficient mode when no one's home.

Nest thermostats already come with all the necessary tools and hardware needed for the installation, including a set of screws and a trim plate. So most likely you'll only need a Phillips head screwdriver and wire cutter. If you don't have these on hand, you can either request for a Tasker who can bring their supplies on-site. You can also ask them to pick up the required supplies at your local store.

It shouldn't take too long to install a Nest Smart Thermostat. As long as you have a skilled person to do it for you, the total project time only ranges for about 30 minutes to one hour per device. Fitting them through a Nest stand is also quicker than mounting them on a wall since you no longer have to screw in a trim plate. Feel free to ask your Tasker directly for a more accurate estimation.

Yes! Nest thermostats are pretty flexible, so they're just as efficient when you pair them to your solar panels. If you want to increase your house efficiency, reduce your electricity bills, and save more money in the long run, you can hire someone to install solar panels on your roof. This way, you can redirect your thermostat so it will get most of its power from the sun. 

Nest thermostats are compatible with virtually any type of heating system, including electric and hydronic underfloor heating, domestic hot water tanks, central heating, and biomass boilers. If you're unsure, can always confirm it with your Nest installer. The installation process proceeds as usual, including the mounting your Heat Link, removing the old thermostat, and rewiring cables.

Yes! On our platform, you can find plenty of thermostat experts who can install almost any thermostat brand, including Hive. Just like Nest thermostats, setting up Hive won't take too long. Once you book a service, expect your Tasker to install the Hive hub, single-channel or dual-channel receiver, and the thermostat body. They can also help activate the system and confirm if everything is running smoothly.

What do Nest thermostat installation services include?

Nest installers handle the entire installation process–from preparing to placing your thermostat anywhere in your home. Depending on your preference, they can mount it on your interior wall or position it on your desk, shelf, or any flat surface using a Nest stand.

Remember that you'll need a stable WiFi connection to control your Nest thermostat using the Nest app and receive software updates. If you have yet to set-up your home network, we can also help you find someone who can assist you.

Here's what to expect from your Nest smart thermostat installation service:

Heat Link installation

Nest thermostats typically come with Heat Link, an indispensable device that tells your system when to turn the heat on or off. Your Tasker must first install Heat Link before mounting your smart thermostat to prevent any irreparable damages from the high voltage current. Ideally, they need to place it somewhere without any metal obstructions that might block the signal from the thermostat. Afterwards, your Tasker can proceed with connecting your Heat Link to the boiler or junction box.

Installing your Nest thermostat onto the wall

If you prefer your thermostat mounted on your interior wall, you need to find a spot near a power outlet as the device has to be plugged in to operate. Should you have limited outlets, a nearby electrician can also add more power points to accommodate your Nest device and other smart technologies in your home.

Your Tasker starts by removing your old thermostat if there is one. Then, they secure the Nest base on the wall, preferably 1.2-1.5m above the floor. Your installer usually completes the installation by connecting the heating system wires within the wall to the thermostat terminal.

Installing your Nest thermostat with a stand

It's more practical to use a Nest stand if you are replacing a wireless thermostat or if you need your new Nest thermostat positioned in a different location. If you choose this installation method, your installer first secures the thermostat to the stand until it clicks into place. Then, they attach the power cable to the base and plug it into the power outlet. 

You can place your Nest on a flat table or shelf, or in a room where you spend most of your time. In case your network signal is unfortunately weak, you can also have a Tasker extend the coverage of your WiFi network so that you can have your thermostat positioned anywhere you want.

Nest thermostat activation

Once your thermostat is placed, your installer turns on the device and checks if it is working correctly. Upon request, they can also set it up for you and connect it to your WiFi. To activate your Nest thermostat, you'll need to download the free Nest app on your mobile device and create an account. From there, you can finally start controlling your indoor temperature.
