Many homes are purchasing and installing new smart thermostats that can be installed and operated from their smartphones or smart devices installed into their home. Heating and Air Conditioning are definitely heading to the future with many options to choose from. Installing a smart thermostat does not necessarily mean it is better than its older less dynamic counterparts it just means they will offer the homeowner more control and understanding of their unit and what it is offering them.
There are several things that make a thermostat considered to be a smart thermostat
- Temperature schedules
- Remote use via wi-fi
- Touch screen
- Voice recognition
- Email alerts
- Power and energy saving reports
- Integration with other smart home devices
1. Nest Thermostat
Probably the most popular, smart thermostat installed in homes today. The Nest’s small and sleek design is very user-friendly and easy to install. This thermostat offers a DIY installation and many energy-saving settings. It is on the higher end of purchasing and is the most expensive unit to have installed rounding out in the $400.00 range. It is promised to not disappoint.
2. Ecobee 4 Thermostat with sensors
The Ecobee is a great option for those that do not prefer the look of the nest or like more manual options. The Ecobee can incorporate intelligent options such as using the cool air outside to cool the inside air when conditions apply. It can also integrate with Alexa. The Ecobee is creeping its way up to the Nest but is still a very valuable smart thermostat to install in your home today rounding out at about $300.00.
3. Honeywell smart Wi-Fi color Touch thermostat
This thermostat is very affordable but also comes with additional instructions that can take away from the DIY experience. It is extremely
energy-saving but needs a c-wire because it does not have an onboard battery. It is smart enough to adjust it’s on and off settings based on how long it takes your home to warm up and cool down. The price point installed is about $200.00.
All in all, all thermostats offer attractive qualities and options for every savvy customer today that is trying to acquire a smart home in today’s changing tech-savvy world.
