Smart thermostats like the Nest aren’t cheap, at least not initially. You drop a large sum of money and the savings start rolling in. Whether it’s the schedule or the smart features that know when you’re home and when to adjust the temperature, a smart thermostat can save you quite a bit of money on heating and cooling.
But it doesn’t have to be expensive to get into smart thermostats, or the smart home in general. Amazon is having a big sale on ecobee products today, with the budget ecobee3 lite dropping down to just $139! You get a a thermostat that can save you up to 23% on heating while being easy to install, even if you don’t have a C wire (it comes with an external power kit).
The standard ecobee is also on sale, down to just $199 at the moment. It offers the same features as the lite model but adds an included smart sensor for multi room temperature sensing, Bluetooth to act like a speaker, Alexa buit in (rather than just supported via a separate Echo device), and more. This is the big boy and is sure to impress.
Both of these thermostats are compatible with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa so you can control them from your voice (or from the app of course). And both use weather data to adjust your schedule in the background, seamlessly making the house comfortable and saving you money.
