Love this thermostat. It was extremely easy to install. Like a lot of people my older home didn’t have a c wire so I was nervous about messing around in my furnace. The instructions were super clear and easy and I installed it without a hitch. Now I can be even more lazy by yelling at Alexa to turn the heat up. Also look up rebates from your electric company. I received $125 back for installing a energy efficiency thermostat. I recommend looking into a wall plate or you can just redo your wall. I couldn’t find a black wall plate so I purchased a white one and painted it black myself.
I'm new to the world of "smart things." The ecobee3 lite thermostat is my second such device - the first being a simple power outlet. So far I'm two for two. This is mainly because the ecobee3 itself is physically very simple and the company's instructions are really comprehensive. The ecobee website is very helpful - essential, I'd say.I'll spare readers the details of my struggles to read schematics and achieve the correct wiring. To summarize: newer HVAC equipment is easy to hook up, older equipment (like my Honeywell oil furnace) can be harder. Ideally, all the wires the ecobee3 needs come from the equipment and the ecobee is a drop-in replacement for your old thermostat. But if you're missing the dreaded "C" wire, you could be in for some extra work and expense. In that case, my advice is to keep it simple. Either get an electrician or a/c tech to install the necessary wiring at/from the equipment OR get a simple 24v power supply and use that to power the ecobee.I did the latter. To summarize again, the ecobee is on my wall and it works. If I can do it, anyone can.
Great upgrade to my home thermostat. Easy install. I installed my two (upstairs and downstairs) in about 30 minutes. Easy and user friendly app setup. Connects without issue to WiFi and quick to update when operating remotely.
Great thermostat. Super easy install. The manual walks you through everything. C wire or not.The app and unit both look great. Definitely minimal, could use a few more features. Just having it on a schedule with the IM Home App cut my heating bill in half. Yes in half!Love that I can always check how warm the house is from anywhere and adjust the temp if I know I won’t be home for awhile.
