Regarding easy installation in the UK
While many people install Hive Active thermostats with minimal fuss, potential problems can ocassionally arise in very old / troublesome systems, for users who are not tech savvy or have a limited knowledge of heating systems and would rather leave the install to someone who knows exactly what they are doing.
The good news is, when purchasing certain Hive models the buyer can now also buy the installation to go with it, meaning it will be fitted / installed by a professional engineer and be up and running in no time.
The cost is quite reasonable considering the high level of service and hassle free Hive installation that many users have already received. Well worth the price. Feedback is excellent. This fitting service can also be purchased on it’s own, and its not exclusive to just Hive models. Click here for more information.
