Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy 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 home when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not there. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than conventional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to boost energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and tailor your heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely. The biggest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor your home’s energy utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should look for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. Style—You don’t need an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the option of 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 manage the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or away. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the ability 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 learn more about your options?
