Installation Terms & Conditions


AXA smart thermostat installation terms and conditions

rnrn

How will you know my house is compatible?

rnrn

We will ask you a number of questions to determine, as far as possible, that your house is compatible for your chosen Smart Thermostat.  We would encourage you to answer these questions as accurately as possible, and contact your engineer case when you’re unsure then as a failed installation could incur a revisit cost.

rnrn

Is my heating system suitable? 

rnrn

Our service will install your chosen smart thermostat to a compatible wet central heating system, where you have an existing wired or wireless thermostat installed.  Due to some system designs, the thermostat may only control your heating and not have the additional hot water functionality.

rnrn

Installations that require alternations to upgrade the wiring or design, to make the thermostat compatible, are not part of this service.   If your system does require alterations, our installer will be able to arrange for you to receive a quotation for this work, but this will be at additional cost to the standard installation.   Due to some system designs, the thermostat may only control your heating and not have the additional hot water functionality.

rnrn

Is my Wi Fi connection suitable?

rnrn

The smart thermostat requires a strong Wi-Fi connection, and therefore you need to ensure that there is a strong Wi-Fi raiserror(,, 16, 1) and mains power socket, in the area of your home where you wish to place the thermostat (we recommend the Lounge, Kitchen or Hallway). You will also need access to a smartphone or tablet that has access to the Wi-Fi connection, in order to install the system successfully. If you don’t have a strong Wi-Fi connection, and a smartphone/tablet, you may incur a cancellation fee for the failed visit.  Please download the Ssmart thermostat App before the installation appointment.

rnrn

Will any redecoration be required?

rnrn

Please note that, although the installer will take all reasonable care to carry out the installation without causing unnecessary damage to your property, there may be some limited damage caused by the removal of existing fixtures and fittings and the installation of your new thermostat.

rnrn

What if there’s a safety issue with my boiler? 

rnrn

If on the day of install, the engineer deems your system to be unsafe under the gas safety regulations, it will need to be fixed prior to installation and may need to be shut down for your own safety.  Where possible, our installer will be able to arrange for you to receive a quotation for this work, but this will be at additional cost to the standard installation. This work would be carried out under a separate arrangement and is not associated with your purchase from EE.

rnrn

What if I need to reschedule my appointment?

rnrn

If you would like to reschedule your appointment, you can do so free of charge, by calling the engineer up to 48 hours before the appointment. You will be given a direct number to contact the engineer after you’ve booked your appointment.  If you reschedule less than 48 hours before your appointment, or need to do so more than once, you will incur a cancellation fee.

rnrn

What if I wish to cancel? 

rnrn

If you wish to cancel your appointment, you can do so free of charge, by calling the engineerup to 48 hours before the appointment.  You will be given a direct number to contact the engineer after you’ve booked your appointment. If you cancel less than 48 hours before your appointment, you will incur a cancellation fee.

rnrn

What if I’m not home when the engineer visits?

rnrn

The engineer will contact you on the day of your appointment and will confirm either an AM or PM time slot. If our engineer travels to your home and finds you’re not, and there isn’t an alternative responsible adult available to accept installation, or that your premises are incompatible, you will incur a cancellation fee.

rnrn

Uninstallation

rnrn

If at any point in the future you wish to uninstall your smart thermostat, it must be replaced by a suitable alternative.  We recommend that the original programmer and thermostat are kept in a safe place, should you believe that the smart thermostat may need to be removed.
