Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which one is the best? R & M Climate Control Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with the top smart thermostats out there right now.
Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can integrate several home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest offers indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also manufactures smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.
What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the device can learn your patterns, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it knows when you’re away. After a while, 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 raise or lower your thermostat, you can just get out your phone 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.
Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t learn in the way the Nest does, however, it is easy to setup and can be programmed with just a couple simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even notifies you when you should change the air filter in your furnace for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes via your mobile app, whether you’re in your kitchen or in the next state. The thermostat 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 centrally located in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 comprehend if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just lingering in one room.
While nearly all the “smart” thermostats learn your habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on energy bills, homeowners who like reports will really enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program different 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.
