Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which one is the best? Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with the best smart thermostats available right now.
Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can merge several home devices into the one convenient app. Nest provides indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased security. Nest also produces smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send alerts to your cell phone 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 family’s routine so it comprehends when you’re away. Over time, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. In the event your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your cell or tablet and make any modifications through the app.
You can get the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on your location, or for $250 with no install.
While Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat is not a learning thermostat like the Nest, it is simple to setup and can be programmed with just a few simple questions. You can alter the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should replace the air filter in your furnace 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 alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your routines, 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 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 be into the Ecobee3. You can program isolated 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.
