The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which one is the best? Golden Seal Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with the best smart thermostats out there right now.

Nest

Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can integrate several home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest offers indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also produces smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.

What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the system can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your family’s routine so it comprehends when you’re away. After a while, you can stop adjusting your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. If your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to raise or lower your thermostat, you can just get out your mobile device and make any modifications through the app.

You can buy the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on your location, or for $250 with no install.

Honeywell

Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t learn in the way the Nest does, however, it is simple to setup and can be programmed with just some simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the device keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should change the air filter in your heating equipment for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes via your mobile app, whether you’re in your kitchen or in the next state. The device even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

Receive your no-charge estimate on this or any other Honeywell Smart Thermostat by scheduling a no-charge consultation online.

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat understands 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 understand if you’re actually 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, 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.
