Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to 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 flexible than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely. The biggest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy usage. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should look 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 manage. 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 pick an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage 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 near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting. Want to see more about your options?
