Why install a Homeserve Tado thermostat?

Thermostats can be spotted in most homes as a method to control central heating. Unfortunately, these older models are usually not great at effectively heating homes to a specific temperature.

In this guide we will be focussing on Tado smart thermostats, however, there are a number of other options from brands such as Hive and Nest. In order to learn more about these, in particular Hive, please read our Hive installation cost guide.

With Tado smart thermostats you can not only upgrade your old system but also save on energy bills and gain better control over your central heating. Read on to discover Tado installation costs and other helpful information.

It is a wise decision and much cheaper to pay upfront for installation when you buy your Tado smart thermostat with an installation cost of £50 vs one of £90 if you pay separately. On the other hand, hiring an electrician could prove more cost-effective, depending on the time required to install the Tado smart thermostat, with electrician hourly rates being on average £40.

Can I install a Homeserve Tado thermostat myself?

Choosing to upgrade to a smart thermostat is usually a streamlined and simple process. When paying for a Tado installation engineer you can be sure of a stress-free, quick and easy job.

Despite this, some people choose to install their thermostat themselves.

While Tado has an intuitive online installation assistant to help you along the way, you should ensure your skill level and physical ability is sufficient before choosing to complete installation yourself. There is also a high potential for damage and injury if not done correctly.
