It’s easy to set up and can help save you money on over the long-term. But how much can you expect to pay for installing a Nest thermometer?

This article will cover what you can expect to pay for the installation and what factors can affect the price.

Most contractors will work at a minimum of £50 per hour including vat. Usually, the installation will take about an hour.

Factors That Affect the Cost

Wiring Needed

It can cost a little more if new wiring is required.

That depends on if you already have a wired thermostat or if you are happy to have your nest on a stand and plugged into a wall socket.

Existing Heating System

The installation can be less or more complicated based on the heating system already installed.

Old heating systems may have unlabelled and undocumented wiring which may be time-consuming for the installer.

Some places have the boiler in very inaccessible areas where working could be tricky.

If you are able to tell your contractor the make or model or send photos, then they can price a more accurate quote.


Prices in the south of the country are more expensive than in the north. In London and surrounding areas, expect to pay extra labour costs.

If the contractor needs to travel further than usual to reach your place then they may also charge extra.
