The Five Best WiFi Smart Thermostats Available Today
A WiFi smart thermostat uses the latest technology to adjust your home’s HVAC system to keep you consistently comfortable every season. Savvy remote sensors adjust the temperatures to your habits and save you up to 10% on your heating and cooling costs annually.
Smart thermostats can even make setting suggestions according to weather patterns. Some have cool features, like Alexa integration and reminders for maintenance tasks, such as changing filters and getting an HVAC tune-up from companies like Honey's Air, Inc. . With the money and hassle you’ll save, you can’t afford not to get one. We’ve made it easier for you to choose with our review of the top five WiFi smart thermostats.
The Honeywell Smart Thermostat is simple to operate and has a bright, easy-to-read touchscreen. You can even customize the color to fit your decor. It’s compatible with gas, oil, or electric forced heat and heat pumps with electric backup. A C-wire is required for heating-only oil furnace systems. It does not work with electric baseboard heaters.
The Honeywell is Energy Star-certified to help you track your heating and cooling with monthly reports and personalized energy-saving tips. You may even qualify for rebates through your local utility company’s Demand Response Program by allowing them to adjust your heating and air settings during high energy demands.
In addition to monitoring temperatures, this smart WiFi thermostat reminds you to change your air filter and alerts you to sudden temperature and humidity changes.
The new ecobee smart thermostat is compatible with most HVAC systems, heat pumps, boilers, and fan coil units. It comes with a power extender kit for C-wireless homes to make installation easy. Made of high-quality materials, it has a sleek design, a large, dynamic display, and looks stylish in your home.
You can control your heating and air using your phone, and the ecobee automatically adjusts the temperatures in your most-used rooms to reduce hot and cold spots.
The ecobee supports the Google Assistant, Alexa, IFTTT, and Smart Things platforms. More than this, it doubles as a security device, and you can use the speaker on the back to play tunes from Spotify, Amazon Music, and AirPlay.
The Wyze is one of the more budget-friendly smart thermostats costing only slightly more than the Amazon Smart Thermostat and has a few more bells and whistles. Easy to install in 30 minutes, it’s compatible with 90% of home systems and comes with an adapter for homes without C-wire. You can check its compatibility on the Wyze website.
The Wyze has an attractive oval shape with a glossy black and white matte finish. The two-inch color display is orange when the heat is on and turns blue when in cooling mode. It generates usage reports, gives energy-saving tips, and supports Alexa and Google Assistant.
4. Google Nest
The Google Nest smart thermostat works with 85% of home heating and air systems. It will work in most homes without a C-wire, but you will need a C-wire or other compatible power accessory for heat pumps and some heating-only, cooling-only, and zone-controlled systems. Check its compatibility on the Google Nest homepage.
The temperature will automatically adjust when you leave the house. Input an energy-efficient schedule in the Google Home app using your mobile phone. Family members can control the temperature from anywhere on a phone, laptop, or tablet.
