The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are starting to be a must for homeowners. But which one is the best? Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with the highest-rated smart thermostats available right now.
Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can merge several home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest offers indoor cameras, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced 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 it can learn your customs, your temperature preferences, and even your daily routine so it comprehends when you’re away. Over time, you can stop touching your thermostat because it will already know to raise or lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to change your thermostat, you can just get out your mobile device 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 where you live, 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 some simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you notified 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 adjustments via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The Honeywell even informs you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your habits, similar to the Nest, but a nice feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t located centrally in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 know if you’re truly away from the home or if you’re just lingering in one room.
While nearly all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, report lovers will really like the Ecobee3. You can program separate 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.
