The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with the highest-rated smart thermostats available right now.
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 easy 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 alerts to your cell 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. Eventually, you can stop adjusting your thermostat because it will already know to raise or lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If for some reason your routine changes, like if you go on holiday, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your phone and make any adjustments through the app.
You can purchase 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.
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 couple simple questions. You can alter the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should replace the air filter in your heating system for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes 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 great feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t located centrally in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 understand if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just lingering in one room.
While almosmt 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 isolated 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.
