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, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your home when you need it, and reduce 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 responsive than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 managed remotely. The largest energy consumer in your home is generally 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 selecting a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage. 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 select a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or out and about. Reliability—Your thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
