Smart thermostats are starting to be a must for homeowners. But which one is the best? Rob's Albertan Service Experts is here with the top smart thermostats in the market right now.
Almost everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can incorporate many home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest makes indoor cameras, perfect for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased security. Nest also manufactures 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 the device can learn your habits, your temperature preferences, and even your daily routine so it understands when you’re away. After a while, you can stop messing with your thermostat because it will raise and lower the temperature automatically and adjust for the seasons. In the event your routine changes, like if you go on a trip, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your mobile device and make any adjustments through the app.
You can purchase the Nest 3rd Generation with professional installation from Service Experts for about $350 depending on where you live, or for $250 for just the thermostat.
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 some simple questions. You can adjust the schedule at any time and the thermostat keeps you informed about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should replace the air filter in your heating system for optimal efficiency. You can make any adjustments via your mobile app, whether you’re in your kitchen or in the next state. The thermostat even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat understands 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 understand if you’re really away from the home or if you’re just staying 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 be into the Ecobee3. You can program isolated zones and get 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.
