An easy solution is a programmable thermostat. It will help you manage when to turn your heating or cooling on and off, depending on when you plan on being home. Let’s go over some of the best thermostats for 2019 on the market so you can make the right choice for your home:

Ecobee Smart Thermostat with voice control
The Ecobee has multi-purpose sensors for all the different types of rooms in your home, making this one the most reliable thermostat. The way it works is it instructs your HVAC to heat or cool the rooms that you are actually in. The thermostat can summon Alexa and has Bluetooth audio to pair with external speakers. The touchscreen interface also makes this one easier to use.
If you do not have Alexa within earshot of the system, it can get quite annoying. It also has a hard time programming complicated schedules.
Mysa Smart Thermostat
This Mysa Smart Thermostat works best with high-voltage heaters for baseboards, radiant, fan-forced convectors, and similar types. That being said, it’s built for more complicated HVAC systems rather than the common central HVACs. This smart thermostat is perfect for its industrial design. It also supports smart home devices like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Apple HomeKit. It also has a Wi-Fi adapter built-in and an easy to use app.
Since the design of the Mysa Smart Thermostat is minimalist, it does limit information on the display. The wiring set up for this thermostat tends to be more complicated because it’s more industrial than common thermostats.
