    What Do You Guys Think About The Ecobee Thermostats?

    Hello

    I’m thinking about using ecobee Wi-Fi thermostats for all my premium package deal furnace & air conditioning installs and I just wanted to get some feedback on this thermostat.

    Thanks!

    From what I hear, Ecobee is a good thermostat. I like Honeywell Prestige IAQ.
    But, if your premium packages have communicating equipment you're likely to be better off using the thermostat by the same brand.

    The reason I ask this because I’ve been hearing that their Tech Support and Customer Service Sucks! 😂

    Whose customer support? Ecobee, Honeywell or your equipment brand?
    I will advise you to stay away from White-Rodgers as I grew frustrated with the poor quality.

    Last tech that called Ecobee left name and number and as far as I know never heard back. Didn't used to be like that.

    I have also had an excellent experience with Honeywell and resideo tech support I've called both before and after the split and they've always been amazing. I hit resideo with some pretty deep questions about how exactly their logic worked because of one of my installations. They took a few minutes to do the research but they answered it and i was able to set it up correctly for my application.

    ive asked here, not ecobee support a few questions. havnt got much response. I put one in my house without much research. works good. seems slow to react, dosent have a fan on feature that I can find, only a fan run time per hour. I thought it was way out of calibration on temp and hum when I installed it but maybe it needed a day or two to adjust, don't know. ive been fking with it. im not very good on the new school stuff so my experience on this is very limited. mine is on a 2 spd Goodman heatpump communicating system. mite have should have bought the Goodman stat but I was told it wasn't as good

    I’ve used one for several years. Only one complaint: you can only use one accessory. Some manufactures, say carrier offer super dehum features. That the Ecobe won’t be able to handle, unless you get creative. So if your looking for a solid WiFi stat, with some good controls features and won’t loose out on manufactures specific features designed in their own stats, go for it.
