Factors That Affect the Cost

Wiring Needed

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

This depends on whether you already have a wired thermostat or 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 inaccessible areas where working could be tricky.

If you can tell your contractor the make or model or send photos, 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, they may also charge extra.
