The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats have become a requirement for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? Finch Air Conditioning & Heating is here with the best smart thermostats in the market right now.

Nest

Almost everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can integrate multiple home devices into the one easy app. Nest offers indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also manufactures 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 patterns, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it comprehends when you’re away. After a while, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. In the event your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to change your thermostat, you can just get out your phone and make any changes through the app.

You can get the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on your location, or for $250 with no install.

Honeywell

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 few simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the device keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should replace the air filter in your heating equipment for optimal efficiency. You can make any modifications via your mobile app, whether you’re in your kitchen or in the next state. The Honeywell even informs you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your routines, 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 understand if you’re really away from the home or if you’re just lingering in one room.

While almosmt all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, homeowners who like reports will really enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program different zones and get 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.
