The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats have become a demand for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? McKinley Heating Service Experts is here with the highest-rated smart thermostats in the market right now.

Nest

Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can incorporate many home devices into the one convenient app. Nest offers indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also manufactures smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your mobile device 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 daily routine so it understands when you’re away. Over time, you can stop touching your thermostat because it will automatically raise the 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 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 with no install.

Honeywell

While Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat is not a learning thermostat like the Nest, it is user-friendly to setup and can be programmed with just some simple questions. You can adjust the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should replace the air filter in your heating equipment for optimal efficiency. You can make any adjustments via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The device even informs you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

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 located in a central location in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 understand if you’re truly 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 energy bills, homeowners who like reports will really enjoy 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.
