The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are becoming a must for homeowners. But which device is the best? Aramendia Plumbing, Heating and Air is here with the highest-rated smart thermostats available right now.

Nest

Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the nice thing about Nest is you can incorporate several home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest offers indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased 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 family’s routine so it knows when you’re away. Over time, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. If for some reason your routine changes, like if you go on holiday, 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 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

While Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat is not a learning thermostat like the Nest, it is simple to setup and can be programmed with just a few simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should swap out the air filter in your furnace for optimal efficiency. You can make any modifications via your mobile app, whether you’re in bed or in the next state. The Honeywell even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat understands your behaviors, 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 comprehend if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just staying in one room.

While nearly all the “smart” thermostats learn your habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, people who love reports will really like the Ecobee3. You can program separate zones and generate 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.
