Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not home. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to boost energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be set up remotely. The biggest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. Style—You shouldn’t have an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the opportunity to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can choose an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or away. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting. Want to see more about your options?
