We have looked through the flyers of major retailers to find the best smart thermostat deals. Every major company in the industry has released deals.

A smart thermostat will pay for itself within a year or two. Nest estimates that their users will save $131 – $145 per year in energy bills. That’s because smart thermostats will automatically adjust heating and cooling when you are gone from home. Multiple independent studies have verified Nest’s claim and they show you can expect to save 10 – 12% on heating and 15% on cooling costs. Most of these thermostats are Energy Star Certified for that reason.

How to Choose a Smart Thermostat

The first thing you should consider is whether the system has additional smart sensors that you can buy. Nest and Ecobee have room sensors that you can place around your house so that the air conditioning system has more data to base its decisions on. It can also prevent one area of the house from being too hot or cold.

Next, you should look for smart home integration. You want to be able to control the system using Google Assistant, Siri, or Amazon Alexa. You should also make sure that the mobile app that’s designed for it is easy to use. Finally, you should check if you can control the thermostat using software like IFTT.

Overall, Black Friday is a great chance to take advantage of a smart thermostat deal and start saving on your energy bills. Ultimately, all of these thermostats will help keep your wallet full.
