Our top equipment picks
Best there is
The best Nest you can get
When money isn't an object and you just want the best smart thermostat around, the Nest Learning Thermostat (3rd Gen) is the one to get. It has a gorgeous color display, can showcase helpful information when it detects you're nearby, and after a bit of use, help you save money on your monthly heating/cooling bill.
The affordable pick
A great choice for tighter budgets
The Nest Thermostat E's screen isn't quite as striking and it only lights up when you stand right in front of it, but other than those two things, it's pretty much the same gadget as the Learning Thermostat. It can be controlled via an app on your phone, connects beautifully with the Google Assistant, and at just $169, is a darn good buy.
