Smart thermostats have become a demand for homeowners. But which one is the best? BW/Cook Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats available right now.
Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can merge many home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest provides indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased security. Nest also produces 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 device can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your family’s routine so it comprehends when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop messing with 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 adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your phone and make any adjustments through the app.
You can purchase the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on what area you’re in, or for $250 for just the thermostat.
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 couple simple questions. You can alter the schedule at any time and the device keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should change the air filter in your heating equipment 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 informs you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your routines, similar to the Nest, but a great 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 understand 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 routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on energy bills, homeowners who like reports will really be into the Ecobee3. You can program different zones and generate 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.
