Have you installed a smart thermostat in your home?

"A smart thermostat can be a great addition to any home. A traditional thermostat requires you to make ongoing adjustments throughout the day, but a smart programmable thermostat automatically adjusts using temperature detection and presets. You can also adjust it via your mobile phone, whether you’re away from home or at home but not close to thermostat." How to Install a Smart Thermostat
Have you installed a smart thermostat in your home yet?

Why? Why not?

Yes, because the house is only used part-time and I like to be able to turn up the heat (I turn it down about 15° F in the winter when I am not there) before I get there rather than sit around freezing while I wait for the house to warm up.

Re: Have you installed a smart thermostat in your home?


I have talked about it before on here, but I installed an Ecobee 3. I really liked it, but it reeked havoc with my furnace. The furnace wouldn't kick on to high heat and the house dropped in temps. The HVAC guy (who hates smart t-stats) recommended I put the old one back on and it fixed my problem.

I didn't have a c wire so I used the PEK adapter from Ecobee. I'm wondering if running new wire will help out, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.

It's sad, as I really liked the thermostat itself.

I'm using a Nest and it's wonderful. I like how I can track things on my phone, get alerts, and just how overall efficient it is.

It's hard to understand why someone wouldn't want one these days with them being so affordable now. Unless the reason is that it isn't compatible with their existing HVAC system or something.
