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 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 there. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to improve 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 customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be managed 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 utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle. Style—You shouldn’t have 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 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 the times you’re at home or elsewhere. Reliability—It 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.
