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. Afterward, 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.
