Thermostat Installation Services

Installing a thermostat can be a complicated process.

It often involves working with your home’s electrical wiring, which can be dangerous if you’re not experienced.

You might also need to obtain permits from the local authorities before starting any work. That’s why it’s important to familiarize yourself with the process thoroughly beforehand. You might also consider seeking help from professionals.

Replacing the Current Thermostat in Your Home

Want to know how to change a thermostat?

The specifics of the process can vary from one unit to the next. Following the manufacturer’s instructions closely is essential. That said, the following steps are typically involved, no matter what type of unit you’re installing:

Removing the Old One

Before anyone does any work, it’s important to shut off all power to both the thermostat and the heating and cooling system.

The manufacturer should offer instructions for disassembling and removing the current thermostat. When doing so, it’s often smart to leave the wall plate in place before removing the entire unit. This indicates how the wiring connects to the rest of the unit.

It could be a helpful guide if you’re installing a similar model; snap a photo of it for future reference. Take this opportunity to test the wires with a circuit breaker, ensuring the power to them is off.

After you’ve taken these steps, continue removing the rest of the unit.

Installing the New One

Before you can install your new thermostat, you might have to adjust the wall anchors. This is likely if its size and shape is noticeably different from your old unit.

Next, install the wall plate, running the wires through it. Refer to both your picture from earlier and the manufacturer’s instructions to determine how to connect the wires to the new thermostat.

Finally, mount the remaining components of the thermostat to the wall plate and switch on the power.


No matter what kind of unit you purchase, there’s a good chance the manufacturer will offer instructions for testing it.

Follow these recommended steps to confirm it works. If you’re having problems, contact a professional for additional assistance.

Getting a Thermostat Installed by the Pros

If you’re not experienced with installing electronic devices like a thermostat, you may not know how to make the necessary connections; this can result in malfunctions in the future.

More importantly, working with your home’s wiring can be dangerous.

Again, you may also be required to obtain a permit in some circumstances. Thus, it’s smart to consider hiring professionals for this task. They’ll do the job right the first time.
