Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money 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 home when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than conventional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be managed 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 usage. 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, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage. Style—You don’t need 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 photo that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or out and about. Reliability—It should have the capacity to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
