If the thought of removing your home’s old thermostat and wiring in a new wireless thermostat makes you break out in a cold sweat, you’re not alone. WiFi thermostat installation in Green Bay is one of the most common requests Robinson Heating & Cooling receives outside of emergencies.
It’s not uncommon for a homeowner to call us in the middle of trying to complete a WiFi thermostat installation themselves, only to realize this task takes a certain level of electrical expertise. WiFi thermostat installation is becoming a popular choice because these smart devices offer you more control over the temperature inside your home.
WiFi thermostat installation provides direct access to the controls of your home’s comfort systems. It allows you to set up programmable routines for daytime or nighttime temperatures, and you can even get your house warmed up in advance of returning home from vacation.
WiFi thermostat installation requires an understanding of electrical wiring
As simple as manufacturers would like you to believe the process of WiFi thermostat installation is, it is not easy for everyone. In fact, it can be downright dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing. Learning this the hard way is something to be avoided.
After confirming your heating and cooling systems are even compatible with a WiFi thermostat, you will need to determine if you have enough wires at the thermostat location. Most systems require a wire to plug into the C-terminal to provide continuous power to the thermostat. There may or may not be a C-wire present with your older thermostat.
We recommend you don’t do it yourself, trust a professional. A Robinson Heating & Cooling technician can safely take care of WiFi thermostat installation for you.
