Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house 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 were created to enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners 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 programmed remotely. The greediest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. Style—You shouldn’t have 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 select a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or elsewhere. Reliability—Your thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
