Need a new thermostat installed? We’ve got you.
Installing an advanced thermostat can help you achieve that perfect temperature at all times. Cool the room before bed? Check. Warm things up before you wake up? Check. Lower the temperature automatically when you’re at work or away for the weekend? Check and check.
But which thermostat is right for you? Do fancy new units require electrical work? Would you have to run a new wire? From where? To where? How? So many questions!
Installing a new thermostat can go from “how hard can it be” to stress, sweat and four-letter words in two seconds flat. Stay cool. Or warm. Call us.
How it works
Sure, some thermostats seem somewhat DIY-ish. But does yours need new wiring? How complex is the set-up? Don’t go from needing a new thermostat to being without one. We’ll install your thermostat properly and set it up exactly how you need it.
Our Rümi home comfort experts are happy to provide you with pricing that …well, that you’re comfortable with. Reach out today.
*Thermostats services are currently only available in Edmonton, but we look forward to offering them to our neighbours in the Calgary area soon.
Will my new thermostat require new wiring?
Many of the newer thermostats require continuous power via a constant wire. In order to determine if your current thermostat has a common wire, it needs to be removed from the wall. If it has a blue or black common power wire, you can likely switch directly to a digital or smart thermostat. If your current thermostat does not have a common wire, we can install one for you.
Do I need to hire a professional to replace my thermostat?
A professional electrician or HVAC specialist will install your new thermostat safely, correctly, and configure it properly. Messing with wiring is no joke. If it’s done incorrectly, it can result in blown fuses, damaged wiring, improper configuration and an overall lack of efficiency, which can result in higher energy bills.
Does the price of the installation include a new thermostat?
No. Pricing covers installing a new thermostat that you supply. We offer Google Nest thermostats through our online store but encourage you to research which type of thermostat is right for your home. Feel free to call and ask our home advisors about the differences between digital, manual, programmable, and smart thermostats before purchasing. Then, simply provide us with the unit, as well as any wiring, remotes or other parts that come with it. If your old unit contains mercury, we can dispose of it safely for you.
Can I have more than one thermostat replaced at a time?
Our service pricing supports the installation of one thermostat, but you are more than welcome to request additional installations that we can tackle during the same house call.
Can I have a smart thermostat installed?
Yes. We have the experience and tools required to install the most advanced thermostats, including those from Nest, Honeywell, ecobee and LockState. Note that programming your smart thermostat to your mobile device may require an additional service charge. Feel free to discuss all of your thermostat specifications as well as any other needs that come up.
