Thermostat Round Up: The Nest, Ecobee & Honeywell

As we all know, in order to stay completely comfortable in your home or office during the summer, the indoor temperature must be set just right. Your thermostat serves as an indicator to adjust your indoor air temperature to your preferred setting and to ensure it remains there. Additionally, it is intended to act as a safeguard when it comes to your heating and cooling bills. If you are having difficulties cooling your indoor space or keeping it cool, there may be a problem with your thermostat. Especially if there is a spike in your energy bill, but the temperature of the room does not reflect a higher electric usage.

So, if you suspect there is a problem with your thermostat, one of our expert San Diego air conditioner technicians can come and inspect your system. We have the knowledge, skill and expertise to handle any thermostat issue. And, if it is determined that you are in need of a new thermostat, our San Diego air conditioner experts can help you choose the right one. From Nest to Ecobee to Honeywell, we have the perfect thermostat for you.
The Nest thermostat is perfect for just about any air conditioner. San Diego residents want to be able to not only heat and cool their homes properly, but save energy as well, which translates to lower heating and cooling bills. Here are some reasons why we love the Nest:

  • The Nest thermostat is an intelligent system that works by getting to know its user. It will automatically program itself in just one week and create a personalized schedule just for you continuing to monitor patterns and make changes accordingly
  • The system can sense when you’ve left and will adjust temperatures accordingly to not waste energy
  • It’s sleek and simple design will fit into any home interior
  • The system educates you on your usage so that you can make better energy decisions and know what impacts your energy bill the most. Also the “Nest Leaf” appears to let you know when you’ve set the thermostat to an energy efficient temperature
  • Whether you want to heat things up or cool things down, adjusting the temperature won’t give you an immediate result. The Nest will tell you how long it will take to reach the temperature you want
  • Using your home’s WiFi, the Nest can be controlled form your computer or smart phone

Any San Diego air conditioner can benefit from an Ecobee thermostat. This thermostat has an easy-to-use touchscreen and homeowners can save an average of 26 percent on their energy consumption through its unique features. Here are some more reasons why we love Ecobee:

  • Ecobee includes a remote feature that allows homeowners and business owners to control their thermostats via their smart phone through easy-to-use apps for iPhones, iPod Touches and Androids
  • Ecobee Smart Thermostat changed the industry with the first Wi-Fi enabled thermostat in 2009, they’ve made it so easy to do this that more than 80 percent of their customers are remotely programming their thermostats
  • Ecobee continues to improve their products and upgrade their software, all at no cost to their customers
  • Great for residential or commercial properties, as well as vacation homes

Honeywell is one of the most recognized names in the industry. There are several thermostats that can fit just about any home and preference for an air conditioner. San Diego residents can count on our experts to help them choose the right one. Check out the list of reasons why Honeywell is one of our recommended thermostats:

  • Whether you want a programmable or a non-programmable, Honeywell has more options than any other company
  • If a programmable thermostat sounds like it would fit your busy life (who wants to try to remember to adjust the temperature every time they leave the house?) your options don’t stop there. You have your choice of a 7-day, 5-2 day, 5-1-1 day or 1 week programmable thermostats.
  • With Honeywell’s selection of WiFi compatible thermostats, the Total Connect Comfort Mobile App allows customers to monitor and control their HVAC system remotely (free apps and no monthly monitoring fees)
  • Their touchscreen is not only in high-definition, but also has tri-lingual options (English, Spanish or French)

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
