The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are starting to be a must for homeowners. But which one is the best? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with the highest-rated smart thermostats in the market right now.
Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can merge many home devices into the one easy app. Nest provides indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also has smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send alerts to your mobile device whenever smoke or CO is detected.
What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that it can learn your customs, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it comprehends when you’re away. Over time, you can stop touching your thermostat because it will already know to raise or lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If your routine changes, like if you go on vacation, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your cell or tablet and make any changes through the app.
You can buy the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on where you live, or for $250 for just the thermostat.
The Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t have the same learning capabilities as the Nest, however, it is easy to setup and can be programmed with just some simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should change the air filter in your heating system for optimal efficiency. You can make any adjustments via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The Honeywell even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your routines, similar to the Nest, but a nice feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t centrally located in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 comprehend if you’re truly away from the home or if you’re just lingering in one room.
While most all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, homeowners who like reports will really enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program separate zones and get reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more.
Ask how you can get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
