Smart thermostats have become a requirement for homeowners. But which device is the best? Kingston Home Services by Enercare is here with the top smart thermostats in the market right now.
Most everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can incorporate several home devices into the one convenient app. Nest offers indoor cameras, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased security. Nest also manufactures smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, which send alerts to your mobile device whenever smoke or CO is detected.
What makes the Nest thermostat “smart” is that it can learn your patterns, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it knows when you’re away. Over time, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically 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 cell or tablet and make any adjustments through the app.
You can buy 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 few 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 furnace for optimal efficiency. You can make any modifications via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The device even informs 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 located centrally in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 comprehend if you’re actually away from the home or if you’re just staying in one room.
While almosmt all the “smart” thermostats learn your behaviors 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 isolated 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.
