The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are becoming a requirement for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning 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 merge multiple home devices into the one convenient app. Nest makes indoor cameras, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also has 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 family’s routine so it understands when you’re away. Over time, you can stop adjusting your thermostat because it will automatically raise the lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If 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 purchase the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on where you live, or for $250 without installation.

Honeywell

The Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t have the same learning capabilities as the Nest, however, it is easy to setup and can be programmed with just a few simple questions. You can adjust the schedule at any time and the device keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts 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 in bed or in the next state. The Honeywell even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat understands 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 habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on energy 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.

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