The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are starting to be a demand for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with the best smart thermostats out there right now.
Practically 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, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased security. Nest also manufactures 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 daily routine so it understands when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop messing with 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 phone and make any changes 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 with no install.
Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t learn in the way the Nest does, 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 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 thermostat even informs you of extreme temperature changes!

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 centrally 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 nearly all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on utility bills, people who love reports will really like 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.
