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, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. 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 programmed 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 usage. 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 selecting a thermostat, think about 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 whether you’re at home or out and about. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting. Want to learn more about your options?
