Smart thermostats are becoming a requirement for homeowners. But which one is the best? Abbey Air Home Services by Enercare is here with the top smart thermostats available right now.
Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the great thing about Nest is you can incorporate many home devices into the one easy app. Nest makes indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also manufactures smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send messages to your cell 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 knows when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop adjusting your thermostat because it will automatically raise the lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. In the event your routine changes, like if you go on vacation, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your phone and make any changes 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 without installation.
Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t learn in the way the Nest does, however, it is easy to setup and can be programmed with just a couple simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you notified 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 alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your routines, similar to the Nest, but a cool 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 truly away from the home or if you’re just lingering in one room.
While almosmt all the “smart” thermostats learn your habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on utility bills, people who love reports will really enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program different 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.
