Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which one is the best? Rolf Griffin Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with the top smart thermostats in the market right now.
Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can integrate many home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest makes indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased security. Nest also has smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send notifications to your cell 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 day-to-day routine so it understands when you’re away. Over time, 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 a trip, if you forgot to raise or lower your thermostat, you can just get out your cell or tablet and make any changes 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 with no install.
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 alter the schedule at any time and the device keeps you updated about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should change the air filter in your heating system for optimal efficiency. You can make any modifications via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The Honeywell even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your routines, 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 comprehend if you’re truly away from the home or if you’re just remaining in one room.
While most all the “smart” thermostats learn your behaviors 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 generate 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.
