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, look at installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your home when you need it, and cutdown 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 responsive than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to enhance 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 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 watch for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. Style—You don’t need 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 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 the times you’re at home or elsewhere. Reliability—A programmable 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 programmed setting. Want to see more about your options?
