It seems every piece of technology in your home is getting more and more intelligent – from smartphones to smart televisions – and the thermostat for your heating and air conditioning system is no different.
In the last few years several smart thermostats have emerged that bring the basic thermostat into the modern era of inter-connectivity. Here we look at two of the most common – the Trane ComfortLink II and the Nest – to find out which one is right for your Atlanta-area home.
The Nest thermostat was launched last year by a team that includes a couple of ex-Apple employees.
The Nest’s design focuses on simplicity, design and making the programmable thermostat more user friendly.
The Trane ComfortLink II is more than just a thermostat – it is a control panel that communicates with your entire HVAC home comfort system. Popular Mechanics listed the ComfortLink II “One of the Most Transformative Products of 2010” and awarded it the Breakthrough Award.
Where the Nest focuses on simplifying the thermostat, the ComfortLink II’s focus is on creating a simpler home HVAC system as a whole.
Which smart thermostat is right for your Atlanta-area home – the Nest or the ComfortLink II – depends on what you are looking for in a thermostat. Want a simple and easy way to save money on your energy bills? Either thermostat may fit the bill.
Want a more feature-rich thermostat that can tie into your complete home automation system? The ComfortLink II may be a better option.
