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 can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and reduce 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 adaptable than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 set up remotely. The greediest 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 consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should look for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, consider 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 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 when you’re at home or away. 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 learn more about your options?
