The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are becoming a requirement for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? McElroy Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats out there right now.

Nest

Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can incorporate several home devices into the one easy app. Nest makes indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also manufactures smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your cell phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.

What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the system can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it comprehends when you’re away. Over time, you can stop adjusting your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. If for some reason your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your mobile device and make any adjustments through the app.

You can buy the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on your location, or for $250 without installation.

Honeywell

The Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t have the same learning capabilities as the Nest, however, it is user-friendly 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 alerts you when you should replace the air filter in your heating equipment for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The thermostat even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat understands your habits, similar to the Nest, but a great feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t located in a central location in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 know 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 habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on energy bills, people who love reports will really enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program different zones and get reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more.

Call 308-210-4398 to get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
