The Top-Rated ThermostatsCompared

January 27, 2017

Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? Strand Brothers Service Experts 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 merge multiple home devices into the one easy app. Nest offers indoor cameras, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also manufactures smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send alerts to your phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.

What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that the system can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your family’s routine so it comprehends when you’re away. Over time, you can stop touching 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 a trip, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your cell or tablet and make any changes through the app.

You can buy the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on what area you’re in, or for $250 with no install.

Honeywell

Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t learn in the way the Nest does, however, it is user-friendly to setup and can be programmed with just a few simple questions. You can adjust the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should replace the air filter in your furnace for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The thermostat even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your habits, similar to the Nest, but a nice 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 know if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just remaining in one room.

While almosmt all the “smart” thermostats learn your behaviors and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on utility bills, homeowners who like reports will really be into 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.
