We have a programmable thermostat that came with our house when we purchased it. The thermostat is a Honeywell, and it’s worked pretty well. I have always heard about a smart thermostat, but have resisted for a variety of reasons. I was waiting for the perfect set of circumstances to upgrade. Guess what? Every box on my list got checked, so I’m now the proud owner of a smart thermostat.
We were happy to wait. Sometimes delayed gratification is worth it, especially when we found a thermostat that meets all of our needs!

The thermostat I decided upon was an Ecobee 3 Lite. I saw as a sale item in last month’s Costco ad, and started doing some research. I was happy to see all of the benefits that it offered. The items below are precisely what we were looking for in a smart thermostat.
