Can I install my thermostat, or do I need a gas engineer?

Ensuring you purchase the right thermostat for your home is vital, as it will control your home heating system. If you’re unsure if a particular type or model of thermostat will be compatible with your current home heating system, you should consult an electrician.

We do not recommend installing your thermostat yourself, thermostats require electrical work, including shutting off your home’s power and adjusting or replacing wires. In fact, it is a legal requirement for new thermostats, especially ones that require a continuous supply of power, to be installed by a trained and licenced electrician.

If you are looking for a registered electrician, you can use the electrical safety first website.
