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 top smart thermostats out there right now.
Almost everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can integrate multiple home devices into the one easy app. Nest provides indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also has smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send alerts to your 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 day-to-day routine so it knows when you’re away. After a while, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will already know to raise or lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If your routine changes, like if you go on vacation, if you forgot to raise or lower your thermostat, you can just get out your phone and make any adjustments through the app.
You can buy the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on where you live, or for $250 for just the thermostat.
The Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t have the same learning capabilities as the Nest, however, it is user-friendly to setup and can be programmed with just a couple simple questions. You can adjust the schedule at any time and the device keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts 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 in bed or in the next state. The device even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your behaviors, similar to the Nest, but a great 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 know if you’re really away from the home or if you’re just remaining in one room.
While most all the “smart” thermostats learn your habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on utility bills, homeowners who like 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.
