The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are becoming a demand for homeowners. But which device is the best? Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with the top smart thermostats out there right now.
Practically 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, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened 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 device can learn your patterns, 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 already know to raise or lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. In the event 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 adjustments through the app.
You can purchase the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on what area you’re in, or for $250 without installation.
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 some simple questions. You can alter the schedule at any time and the device keeps you updated about any changes in indoor climate and even notifies you when you should change the air filter in your heating system for optimal efficiency. You can make any modifications via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The thermostat even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends 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 truly away from the home or if you’re just remaining in one room.
While almosmt all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, report lovers will really like the Ecobee3. You can program separate zones and get reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more.
Call 215-259-5850 to get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
