The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats have become a must for homeowners. But which one is the best? Fras-Air/General Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats available right now.

Nest

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

What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the system can learn your patterns, your temperature preferences, and even your daily routine so it knows 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. 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 mobile device and make any adjustments 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 without installation.

Honeywell

The Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t have the same learning capabilities as the Nest, however, 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 device keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even notifies you when you should swap out 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 routines, similar to the Nest, but a nice 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 understand if you’re truly away from the home or if you’re just staying in one room.

While nearly all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on energy bills, people who love reports will really like the Ecobee3. You can program different 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.
