Anyone can install a smart thermostat! Here are some instructions and advice to help you install your own smart thermostat.
Installing a thermostat in your home allows you to substantially reduce your heating costs by regulating heating without compromising comfort. Thanks to its remote monitoring and heating schedule adapted to your habits and lifestyle, a smart thermostat only heats rooms when necessary and thus avoids wasting energy. Although these smart solutions are at the cutting edge of heating innovation, their installation remains simple and accessible to all.
A key condition: boiler compatibility
Before ordering a smart thermostat, make sure that the selected model is compatible with your heating system. To do so, you can refer to the thermostat instructions or thermostat compatibility tool on the manufacturer’s website. Netatmo’s Smart Thermostat is compatible with more than 1500 individual types of boilers (gas, wood or fuel oil) and heat pumps.
Installing a smart thermostat is easy!
You only need a screwdriver to install most smart thermostats. It’s as simple as making the electrical connections to install a switch or lamp. To put in a smart thermostat, just follow the instructions provided or the video tutorial created by the manufacturer. Essential safety precaution: the main power must be switched off before touching the electrical wiring!
Among the different smart thermostats on the market, Netatmo’s Smart Thermostat is distinguished by its easy installation, which takes under an hour.
What’s the best installation for my home?
Not all smart thermostats have the same installation. Some can be installed wirelessly, while others require a wired connection. Other models, like Netatmo’s Smart Thermostat, offer two options to best adapt to users’ needs. For remote control heating, you can download the app on your smartphone or tablet.
Another solution: call on a professional
If the manufacturer’s instructions are not sufficiently clear or modifying the existing installation seems too complex, you can also call on a professional. In this case, you should carefully choose your service provider and ensure that they are familiar with the thermostat model that you want installed.
Netatmo allows users to find a local installer thanks to their network of professional installers, certified to install its heating products. The user is thus guaranteed quick installation and the best advice. When using a service provider trained in Netatmo’s technology, it usually takes no more than 20 minutes for the smart thermostat to be fitted and connected to your smartphone via the app.
