The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are becoming a requirement for homeowners. But which one is the best? McElroy Service Experts is here with the best smart thermostats in the market right now.

Nest

Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the great 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 has 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. Eventually, you can stop adjusting your thermostat because it will automatically raise the lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If for some reason your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to change 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

While Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat is not a learning thermostat like the Nest, 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 thermostat keeps you updated about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should change 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 notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your habits, similar to the Nest, but a cool feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t centrally located in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 know if you’re really 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, people who love 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.

Right now you can get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
