Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy 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 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 flexible than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners 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 largest 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 easily work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. Style—You don’t want an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the choice 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 manage the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or out and about. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting. Want to hear more about your options?
