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, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will 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 there. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to boost energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs attention. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be set up remotely. The largest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control 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 be compatible 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 opportunity to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can pick a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or away. Reliability—Your thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
