The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are becoming a demand for homeowners. But which one is the best? Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats out there right now.

Nest

Almost everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can integrate several home devices into the one easy app. Nest provides indoor cameras, great 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 device can learn your customs, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it knows when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop touching 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 holiday, if you forgot to change your thermostat, you can just get out your phone 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

While Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat is not a learning thermostat like the Nest, it is user-friendly to setup and can be programmed with just a couple simple questions. You can alter the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should replace the air filter in your heating system for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes via your mobile app, whether you’re in your kitchen or in the next state. The Honeywell even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns 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 comprehend if you’re truly away from the home or if you’re just staying in one room.

While almosmt 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 be into the Ecobee3. You can program different zones and receive reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more.

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