The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which device is the best? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with the highest-rated smart thermostats in the market right now.
Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can merge multiple home devices into the one convenient app. Nest makes indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also has smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your cell phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.
What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the device can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your family’s routine so it understands when you’re away. Over time, 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 adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your cell or tablet 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 what area you’re in, or for $250 without installation.
While Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat is not a learning thermostat like the Nest, it is easy to setup and can be programmed with just a few simple questions. You can modify 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 furnace for optimal efficiency. You can make any adjustments via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The thermostat even informs you of extreme temperature changes!

While almosmt all the “smart” thermostats learn your habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on energy bills, report lovers will really like the Ecobee3. You can program different zones and get reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more.
Call 866-397-3787 to get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
