As you already have a wireless thermostat installed then it is likely that the Nest Thermostat will work with your heating system.
- Is the Nest Thermostat wireless?
The connection between the thermostat and the Heat link is wireless. The Nest Thermostat does require power and this is provided either via the heat link that is sold with the device, a usb plug and power lead sold with the nest stand or via an extra low voltage supply from your property.
- I don’t have a power supply at the location I want the thermostat installed, what are my options?
Under our standard installation, best thing would be to install the Nest on a stand which costs £35. The stand can be placed on an occasional table, dresser of shelf and will work as optimally as if the thermostat was installed on a wall.
- I want the thermostat installed on the wall but I don’t have a wire with a power supply at that location?
This is a non-standard installation; our engineer will advise work that would need to be done. There will be a charge for any additional installation works that are not part of the standard installation service. No additional work will begin before its agreed.

Yes! The Nest Thermostat learns your behaviours in your property and it reacts. The level of interaction required is minimal. You can leave it to manage your heating without programming a schedule.
