Question DetailsAsked on 1/24/2017

how much does it cost to install a honeywell pro 5000 thermostat

I was quoted $1,080 to install two honeywell pro 5000 thermostats in my home in Tallahassee, FL and think this is very high. The parts only costs $50 each.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

This is a very minimal thermostat - just ON/OFF at the temperature you set, so assuming your HVAC system is amenable to this type of thermostat (some whole-house management type HVAC systems would not be, but generally a house with 1 or 2 furnaces or boilers and 1 or 2 air conditioners; or 1 or 2 heat pumps, can be controlled by the appropriate (1/1 or 2/2) model.


Since this is non-programmable - you just hook up two wires from each unit it is controlling, put in batteries, set the correct anticipator setting on the back (assuming it has one - even the simplest thermostats usually do) and the desired temperature, and set the HEAT or AC switch to the correct setting for the season - should take maybe 5 minutes to install and then maybe 15-30 minutes to test, depending on number of units they are controlling. That would normally be about $75-200 depending on area labor costs - usually about $100-150 for the labor, plus the two thermostats (which are about $35-60 each retail depending on Series 5000 model, but if bought through the installer likely more like $100-140 each billing rate) - but still FARRR from $1,080 - which sounds to me like a total attempted ripoff.


I would be looking for another quote or two - and if you don't have the thermostats yet, that model does not allow for daytime/nighttime or home/away setbacks, or day of week differences in sleep/awake temperatures - that option is available in 7 day programmable thermostats for generally only about $0-15 more per thermostat depending on model.


Also not at all tough to do yourself if moderately home-handy - just be sure the power to the units being hooked up is off, pay attention to which wire is hooked to which connection on the existing ones, and unhook from the old and connect to the new one wire at a time to avoid mixing up heat and A/C wiring.
