Mountainwest Service Experts Compares the Top Thermostats Published on January 27, 2017 Smart thermostats are starting to be a requirement for homeowners. But which thermostat is the best? Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with the top smart thermostats out there right now. Nest Almost everyone has heard of the Nest Learning Thermostat, and the wonderful thing about Nest is you can incorporate several home devices into the one easy app. Nest provides indoor cameras, great for baby monitors, and outdoor cameras, for enhanced security. Nest also produces 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 family’s routine so it knows when you’re away. Eventually, you can stop touching 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 holiday, if you forgot to adjust your thermostat, you can just get out your phone and make any modifications through the app. You can purchase 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. Honeywell Honeywell’s Wifi Smart Thermostat doesn’t learn in the way the Nest does, however, it is simple to setup and can be programmed with just a couple simple questions. You can modify the schedule at any time and the Honeywell keeps you notified about any changes in indoor climate and even informs you when you should swap out the air filter in your heating equipment for optimal efficiency. You can make any changes via your mobile app, whether you’re on the couch or in the next state. The thermostat even alerts you of extreme temperature changes!

Ecobee3 The Ecobee3 Smart Wifi Thermostat comprehends your routines, similar to the Nest, but a great 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 know if you’re really 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 enjoy the Ecobee3. You can program different zones and receive reports on average temperatures, how much money you’ve saved, and more. Call 385-399-0280 to get the Ecobee3 2nd Generation from Service Experts for about $250. Need help deciding?
