A smart thermostat does the work you don’t want to think about. It can change temperatures throughout your home to make you more comfortable while using less energy. Learn your routine, turn it down when no one is home, and learn your schedule (talk about win-win).
1. Google Nest Learning Thermostat
The third-generation Google Nest Learning Thermostat learns your heating and cooling preferences. It then autonomously develops an optimal Schedule to maximize efficiency, eliminating the need to program it yourself. It’s simple to set up, works with most systems, and works with Nest Temperature Sensors, which you can position under challenging places to keep your rooms pleasant.
2. Ecobee’s Smart Thermostat With Voice Control
Ecobee’s smart thermostat with Voice Operate can play music, convey news, control your home’s bright lights, and change the heat and air conditioning with a simple Alexa voice command. It also works with remote sensors, which you may set in rooms that are too hot or chilly.
3. Honeywell Home T5 Smart Thermostat
The Honeywell Home T5 Smart Thermostat is a less costly smart thermostat that still has most of the capabilities seen in our other recommendations. Although it cannot detect your presence in the home or automatically select a Schedule, its built-in geofencing feature performs admirably. It enables beneficial interactions with other smart-home devices, such as lighting lights when you enter or depart.
4. Mysa Smart Thermostat
Your “dumb” and ineffective electric baseboard heating will be considerably more cost-effective with the Mysa Smart Thermostat. We like its sleek, contemporary look, the fact that it doesn’t need a separate hub, and the fact that it is compatible with all of the central smart-home systems. It is our only choice in an admittedly small field—it works with 110-volt electrical heating sources (Alexa, Google Assistant, HomeKit, and SmartThings).
5. Wyze Thermostat
Wyze’s smart thermostat maintains its reputation for cost-effective intelligent gadgets. The Wyze thermostat is the way to go if you’re looking for a straightforward thermostat that is simple to install and has easy-to-understand controls. However, the gadget itself didn’t win any beauty awards in our hands-on review.
6. Bosch Thermo Technology Connected Control Wi-Fi Thermostat
Many features we value are present in the Bosch smart thermostat, including the Alexa connection. Because it is such a robust device, managing not just temperature but also other air conditioning equipment placed in the home, such as a ventilation system or a whole-house dehumidifier or humidifier, it is also well-liked by HVAC specialists.
7. GOOGLE Nest Thermostat E
Most of the capabilities in the more expensive model are also present in the intelligent E Nest thermostat, albeit in a more economical package. For instance, its frosted display simply shows the temperature, in contrast to the premium. Nest’s mirrored glass display also shows the time and the current weather.
8. Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat
Most of the well-known brands in the smart thermostat market cost $200 or more or more. The Emerson Sensi Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat (ST55), which costs half as much but still has several high-end capabilities, is exceptional because it is cost-effective. It begins with an app that provides detailed installation instructions and video guides.
9. Orbit Clear Comfort Programmable Thermostat
Although programmable thermostats have a lot of features and are more economical than intelligent thermostats, they are only recommended if you have a reliable Wi-Fi connection. The Orbit Clear Comfort Programmable Thermostat is a standout among alternatives. The Orbit Clear Comfort may be installed without a C-wire and is simple to install with two-wire systems that are in use today.
10. Lennox 13H14 Comfort Sense 7500 Touchscreen Multi-Stage
This non-smart programmable thermostat is exceptional in that it can manage HVAC systems with multiple stages. It works well, has an excellent high-contrast display, and is simple to set up and configure. It costs more than many smart thermostats with superior capabilities, requires a C-wire, and lacks vacation settings.
