What Are the Best Smart Thermostats on the Market?

July 21, 2020 | Blog

Smart thermostat technology keeps getting more intelligent. Now on the consumer market for almost 10 years, smart thermostats have permanently transformed the way home HVAC systems function and interact with people. These brainy units provide features never imagined with the old-school mechanical thermostats that were once a fixture in homes for decades. From monitoring and control with a dedicated smartphone app to multiple remote room sensors to geofencing functions to intelligent units that learn your daily temperature habits, smart thermostat technology makes comfort control not only more intuitive but also more energy-efficient and effective.

Here are just three standout examples of smart thermostat technology on the market now:

Ecobee Smart Thermostat with Voice Control

At a mid-range price, Ecobee includes abundant features such as a remote room sensor, integrated occupancy and proximity sensors to know when you’re home and where you are, voice technology that links to Amazon’s Alexa home-automation system, and 12 accessory terminals for accessories such as dehumidifiers and air-filtration units.

Honeywell Lyric T5

Priced in the budget range well below other name-brand smart thermostats, the T5 still delivers a lot of smart for the dollar. Standout features include geofencing technology and voice operation. Remote monitoring and temperature control are provided with an Android or iOS smartphone app. If desired, the T5 also offers simplified, user-friendly, manual operation—an option frequently neglected nowadays in the higher-priced, more-automated smart units.

Nest Learning Thermostat

Nest launched the era of smart thermostat technology, and the company continues to refine the concept with its premium-priced Third Generation model. Individual room sensors gather data about daily occupancy patterns and temperature preferences, and algorithms generate scheduled changes without user input. Voice-control features are compatible with Amazon Alexa, and advanced geofencing functions know when you’ve left and when you’re on your way home, adjusting temperatures accordingly. Info such as energy-usage reports are instantly accessible, and mobile apps are full-featured.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
