Smart thermostats are starting to be a demand for homeowners. But which device is the best? Strogen's Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats available right now.
Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can integrate multiple home devices into the one easy app. Nest makes indoor cameras, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for heightened security. Nest also has smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send alerts to your cell phone whenever smoke or CO is detected.
What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that it can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your family’s routine so it knows when you’re away. After a while, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will already know to raise or lower the temperature and adjust for the seasons. If your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to change your thermostat, you can just get out your cell or tablet and make any modifications through the app.
You can buy the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on where you live, or for $250 without installation.
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 alter the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you updated about any changes in indoor climate and even notifies you when you should replace the air filter in your heating system for optimal efficiency. You can make any modifications via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The Honeywell even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your habits, similar to the Nest, but a nice feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t located centrally in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 know if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just staying in one room.
While most all the “smart” thermostats learn your behaviors 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.
Call 603-923-4570 to get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250.
