There’s a ton of hype around Nest and Ecobee, and I’ve been tempted to get an Ecobee but it’s just so expensive. I tried getting in on the Honeywell Wifi thermostat deal at Target but couldn’t find any, unfortunately. Since then, I’ve been trying to find something for under $100 at least. Maybe closer to $50. Seems like the PEQ thermostat, after reading around on here, would be a good option. I’m in a smallish condo so I don’t need anything super fancy with multiple zones, etc. Just have a simple/straightforward central AC/fan and furnace system setup and even then, the airflow isn’t great in all parts of the place (thanks to crowded ductwork, according to the AC tech who came out to inspect things half a year ago). That said, I’d like to have the ability to control temps remotely from the phone as well as perhaps setup some automation to turn on the heat or AC based on different things (e.g. if I’m home vs out, as well as even based on current outside temps, etc).
Can this all be accomplished with the PEQ thermostat?
