Barlow Service Experts Compares the Top Thermostats Published on January 27, 2017 Smart thermostats have become a must for homeowners. But which device is the best? Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with the top smart thermostats out there right now. Nest Practically everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can merge many home devices into the one user-friendly app. Nest provides indoor cameras, ideal for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for increased security. Nest also has 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 the system can learn your customs, your temperature preferences, and even your day-to-day routine so it knows when you’re away. Over time, you can stop touching 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 holiday, 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 with no install. Honeywell 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 alter the schedule at any time and the device 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 changes via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The Honeywell even notifies you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3 The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your routines, similar to the Nest, but a nice feature of the Ecobee3 is the remote sensors. If your thermostat isn’t located in a central location in your home, the remote sensors help the Ecobee3 comprehend if you’re truly away from the home or if you’re just remaining in one room. While nearly all the “smart” thermostats learn your habits and adjust your thermostat accordingly to save you money on utility bills, report lovers will really be into the Ecobee3. You can program isolated zones and generate reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more. Call 801-436-8985 to get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250. Need help choosing?
