The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats have become a demand for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with the highest-rated smart thermostats in the market right now.
Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can incorporate many home devices into the one easy app. Nest makes indoor cameras, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also produces smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your mobile device 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 knows when you’re away. Over time, you can stop adjusting your thermostat because it will automatically raise the lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If for some reason your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to change your thermostat, you can just get out your mobile device 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 what area you’re in, or for $250 with no install.
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 some simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the device keeps you updated about any changes in indoor climate and even alerts you when you should swap out the air filter in your heating equipment for optimal efficiency. You can make any adjustments via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The Honeywell even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat understands your routines, similar to the Nest, but a cool feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t centrally located 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 most all the “smart” thermostats learn your behaviors and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on heating and cooling bills, report lovers 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.
