Top Thermostat Installation related questions

When should I replace or upgrade my thermostat?

One of the most obvious reasons to replace your old thermostat is if it's already broken and no longer performing the way it is supposed to. It's also wiser to get an upgrade if you are still stuck with an older model. Since modern thermostats have more advanced technology, they are undoubtedly versatile and more energy efficient. They can also help you save money by reducing the output of your HVAC system.

Do I need to provide tools or equipment for my thermostat replacement service?

Not necessarily, since they can bring their own toolkit for the service. However, if you prefer your Tasker to use your tools, you may do so as well. Just make sure to coordinate with them upon booking to know if they need more specific tools for the job. The supplies required for a thermostat installation include a screwdriver, wrench, and wire splitter. You might also need a drywall anchor when securing the faceplate mount.

How long does it take to replace my boiler thermostat?

If handled by a skilled heating specialist or electrician, then replacing a boiler thermostat should not take too long to complete. Most of the time, it only takes 1-2 hours for each thermostat, longer if you have a more complicated unit. Since the exact duration will also depend on the capabilities of your Tasker, you can directly ask them for a more accurate estimation.

Can a Tasker also help me replace my thermostatic shower valve?

Yes, you'll also find qualified Taskers on our platform who can fix faulty thermostatic shower valves. The service includes isolating the water supply, disconnecting the existing pipework, removing the damaged thermostatic shower valve, and fitting the new unit. They can also give your shower a test, securing that your new thermostatic shower valve has been fixed in place. Requiring a little plumbing work, make sure to hire someone who has a relevant skill or experience in the field.

Can I also hire a Tasker to install thermostats in a commercial space?

Of course! Not limited to residential applications, you can also book a thermostat installation service for commercial spaces like offices, hotels, and restaurants. Since commercial thermostats accommodate larger environments, they are mostly built with more complicated components. Meaning, the installation time might take a little longer, unlike with regular thermostats. A precisely installed commercial thermostat can give you peace of mind knowing that your employees, guests, and customers are comfortable with either warmer or colder indoor air.

Apart from thermostat installation, how else can a Tasker help me with other household DIY tasks?

Through Airtasker, you can book handymen, tradies, and other experts who can help you with a range of services. Apart from thermostat installations, Taskers can also install your appliances or assemble your new furniture to its designated place. If you are aiming to make your house smarter, you can turn to them for home automation requests. Additionally, they can help you establish a good, stable WiFi connection to accommodate your smart technology.

What do thermostat installation services include?

Whether you want to replace your old thermostat due to old age, or simply because you found a more advanced model, installers can handle the entire setup and installation process for you. You can get help with almost any type of thermostat, regardless if it's programmable or non-programmable, wired or wireless, or smart.  

If you have yet to purchase one, your Tasker can also help you find the best thermostat that suits your needs. Utilising their technical expertise for the job, you can expect a quicker turnaround time without compromise. Here's what you can expect:

Removing the old thermostat

When removing the old thermostat, make sure to turn off your HVAC units, either from the electrical breaker box or by switching off the system. The purpose is to limit potential hazards while accessing the wires and circuits. 

Your Tasker usually starts by removing the old front plate. Before they disconnect the body, they keep the wires labelled and identified to make it easier to reconnect the new thermostat later on. Then, they unscrew the old mounting plate from the wall.

Need help with disposing of your old thermostat? Unlike regular trash, they shouldn't simply go to your kerbside collection. Instead, you can hire a clearance specialist to collect them and hand them over to a hazardous waste drop-off site. 

Fitting the new thermostat

Taskers follow the recommended installation steps from the manufacturer. Usually, it starts by connecting the new plate on the wall and then reconnecting the labelled wires in their corresponding terminals. All excess and loosened wires are then pushed back into the wall. The last step is the mounting of the cover plate.

With a properly installed thermostat, it should be easier to maintain an ideal indoor temperature without the need to leave your AC on full blast. But if you want to cut down your energy and electrical consumption, you might also want to consider insulating your room through walls or ceilings.

Configuration and final testing

To confirm the success of the installation, you need to turn the power back on and reset the setting of your new thermostat. Your Tasker can help you program the unit as per the user manual. If you're using a smart thermostat, they can connect them to your wireless network and then try controlling from a third-party device, like a smartphone or tablet. Once done, set the desired temperature of your HVAC unit and check if they are heating or cooling the space as required.
