Ready for winter? This smart thermostat is 40% with Amazon’s early Black Friday deals

The days are getting shorter and temperatures are dropping rapidly. We will face adverse weather over the next few months and will have to rely on artificial heat to stay warm. Sure, good space heating can reduce the chills indoors, but to keep your atmosphere warm, shall we say, you might want to take a bigger step towards your home heating system. With the hot Black Friday deals, you can bet there’s a smart thermostat on sale now that will fit your wallet and save you some money in the long run. We found one in the discount bin that we think you’ll like: the Honeywell Home Wi-Fi Smart Color Thermostat and it’s only $100 instead of $170 – that’s a more than 40% discount!

This device isn’t like the thermostat your parents wouldn’t let you touch. In fact, you don’t even have to touch them – you can monitor them and control the temperature with the app, even if you’re halfway across the world. It’s a feature Amazon shoppers love.

“Just installed our new thermostat this week and so far good,” shared one of over 10,000 Five Star fans. “It’s amazing how we can program it from our phones or iPads to set the temperature we want when we’re awake or asleep.”

“For cost reasons, I like the idea of ​​turning the heating down when I’m not at home,” shared another enthusiastic reviewer. “You don’t have to waste money heating an empty house. Before returning home, I just open the app and turn up the temperature. For scheduling, it starts 30-40 minutes before the scheduled time to slowly increase the temperature rather than blasting the oven until the temperature reaches the desired setting.”

And through the app, Honeywell can send you reports on your energy consumption, including monthly averages.

One five-star fan wrote, “I even get a monthly usage report in my email showing me how much energy I’m using, which allows me to fine-tune my planned AC usage so I can lower my energy bill.”

It is compatible with most heating and cooling systems such as forced air and heat pumps with electrical assistance. It also has a sleek design and if you’re really into aesthetics, you can change the color of the easy-to-read touchscreen to match your decor.

“I bought not only because of its cool looks and changeable color, but because it was the first WiFi device I found that offered a ‘heat pump’ control setting,” reported another satisfied buyer. “Some of the others I looked at didn’t. Lots of useful features and an easy to read control panel.”

Of course, if you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping. Not a member yet? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders $25 or more.)
