The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which one is the best? Chief/Bauer Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats available right now.

Nest

Almost everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the great thing about Nest is you can incorporate many home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest provides indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also manufactures 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 customs, your temperature preferences, and even your family’s routine so it understands when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will already know to raise or lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. In the event your routine changes, like if you go on vacation, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your cell or tablet and make any modifications through the app.

You can purchase the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on your location, or for $250 for just the thermostat.

Honeywell

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 few simple questions. You can alter the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should swap out the air filter in your furnace for optimal efficiency. You can make any modifications via your mobile app, whether you’re in your kitchen or in the next state. The device even informs you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your behaviors, 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 know if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just staying in one room.

While most all the “smart” thermostats learn your behaviors and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, report lovers will really like the Ecobee3. You can program isolated zones and generate reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more.

Call 217-689-2469 to get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
