The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are starting to be a demand for homeowners. But which device is the best? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with the best smart thermostats available right now.
Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can merge several home devices into the one easy app. Nest offers indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also manufactures smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.
What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the device can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it understands when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop touching your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. If 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 changes 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 with no install.
Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t learn in the way the Nest does, however, it is simple to setup and can be programmed with just a few simple questions. You can adjust the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even notifies 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 in your kitchen or in the next state. The thermostat even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your behaviors, 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 understand if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just remaining in one room.
While nearly all the “smart” thermostats learn your behaviors and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on utility bills, people who love reports will really enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program isolated 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.
