The Top-Rated Thermostats Compared
Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which device 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 integrate many home devices into the one convenient app. Nest makes indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced 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 it can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it knows when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop messing with 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 adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your phone 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 without installation.
The Honeywell Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t have the same learning capabilities as the Nest, however, it is simple to setup and can be programmed with just some simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you updated about any changes in indoor climate and even notifies you when you should swap out 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 thermostat even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat learns your routines, similar to the Nest, but a great feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t centrally located in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 know if you’re truly away from the home or if you’re just lingering in one room.
While most all the “smart” thermostats learn your routines and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on energy bills, report lovers will really like the Ecobee3. You can program different zones and receive 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.
