When you look for a thermostat, it’s important that you consider all of the thermostat brands on the market. Some brands you may never have heard of, and some are known for their innovative design – like the Nest.
We are going to be talking about the top thermostat brands in the world, and providing you a little bit of feedback on each.
The Nest is one of the most popular brands in the world because they did something a little bit different with their thermostat – they designed it to learn. A simple design, this particular thermostat rose to popularity so quickly that Google purchased it for $3.2 billion in cash.
And the acquisition allowed the brand to offer motion sensor detection to change your thermostat when you’re at home (and when you’re not home) automatically.
Honeywell is a company that has been around since 1906, and the brand provides dozens of different electronics, engineering services, products, and a variety of other items. This is one of the top companies in the world, and the thermostats this company offers go back to 1885.
Before the company was turned into Honeywell, the founder invented a thermostat for coal furnaces.
Now, the company offers some of the most innovative thermostats, and the Honeywell WiFi Smart Thermostat ranks at the top of our list for the best thermostat of 2017.
Ecobee is one of those thermostat brands that has really started to make a name for itself. The company is from Canada, and was founded in 2007. The flagship thermostat that the company offers is the ecobee 3, and this model works with Wi-Fi connectivity to allow for complete control from your iOS, Android or Apple watch.
Emerson Climate Technologies offers the famous White-Rodgers 1F86U-42WF Emerson Sensi. The company is a subsidiary of Emerson Electric Co., a 126-year-old company that is headquartered in Missouri. The company currently has 220 manufacturing locations, and is well known for its industrial, consumer and commercial products.
Emerson offers affordable digital and programmable thermostats to consumers, and is one of the top thermostat brands in the world.
5. Iris by Lowes
Iris is actually a company that was created by Lowe’s, the home improvement store. The company decided to make their own lineup of different consumer products, and Iris offers many thermostats that are comparable to the Nest – just not as aesthetically pleasing.
This is a great product for anyone that wants an affordable thermostat, and it’s backed by Lowe’s which is one of the most respected home-improvement stores in the world.
Knowing the most popular thermostat brands isn’t enough to go off of when making a purchase. You’ll also need to look at the features of the product to determine if it’s a good choice for your home or office. I highly recommend Wi-Fi or digital thermostats because they offer much more flexibility and control over your heating and cooling system. And if you can buy one that offers smart phone compatibility, you’ll be able to adjust your home’s heating and cooling on the go – even at work.
