Thinking of having a smart thermostat installed?

Smart thermostats are growing in popularity as a modern, energy-efficient installation that can save money while enhancing home comfort.

A smart thermostat can also improve convenience and provide you with more control over your home’s heating, even when you are out and about.

And to have this advantageous smart device installed you must hire a professional for both safety reasons (given the electric wiring involved in fitting one) and to ensure optimal efficiency and avoid potential issues whether in the immediacy, short-term or later on down the line.

In this guide we’ll look at how you can use MyJobQuote to find smart thermostat installers in your area.

Let’s dive in!

Understanding Your Smart Thermostat Installation Needs

To begin with, it’s important that you have a good idea of what you need from a smart thermostat installed, to the extent that’s possible.

On the one hand, you’ll want to consider what type of smart thermostat is for you, in terms of the quality, cost and features included. Of course, it may be the case that not all smart thermostats will be compatible with your heating and cooling system. Beyond that, it’s important to consider any additional smart home integrations you desire.

Whether or not you know exactly what type of smart thermostat you’d like to have installed (or even the exact model for that matter), you should discuss what you’re looking for with the installer you hire.

For one, if you know what you’d like in a smart thermostat instalment, it’s still important to verify with the installer in case there are any issues (e.g. compatibility problems may arise). Of course, if you don’t know what option is right for you, the installer can help with this too and you may want to request that they source the smart thermostat unit for you.

Utilising MyJobQuote's Online Directories

MyJobQuote provides several ways of finding professionals near you for a smart thermostat installation, more specifically electricians since a qualified electrician must perform this work given the electric wiring involved.

Attempting this work DIY is not allowed due to the safety risks associated with it. After all, electrics can involve lethal hazards (e.g. electrocution or an electrical fire).

One way of using our website to find electricians near you is with our online electrician directory. This can be used to evaluate a range of local electricians based on their MyJobQuote profiles, providing details like ratings, reviews and even customer feedback.

With these details you can gauge the quality of services offered by the listed professionals so that you can make an informed decision.

Verifying Installer Credentials

In general, it’s important to verify that the electrician you choose to hire is qualified and has the right experience. The good news is that with MyJobQuote you can be sure that any and all electricians with a profile on our service have been verified. This is important because electricians must be qualified to perform electrics works such as a smart thermostat installation.

Whatever the case, you’ll also want to ensure the installer you opt for is familiar with different brands and models. What’s more, asking for references or examples of prior smart thermostat installations can help you verify their competency.

Engagement and Communication

It’s important to communicate effectively with your smart thermostat installer of choice from the get go. This means conveying your specific requirements, raising any concerts you have and getting an understanding of the installation process.

Of course, you’ll want to talk about what sort of smart thermostat is right for you and your home as well as getting an idea of what the installation will involve and perhaps how long it might take too.

Effective engagement from start to finish can lead to a smoother installation experience while ensuring the smart thermostat is set up per your expectations. With that said, it’s important to avoid distracting the electrician while they are in the middle of electric works unless it's an emergency, therefore, be sure to bring up key points before the work begins.

Utilising MyJobQuote’s Quote Form
