Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re looking 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 house when you need it, and reduce the energy being used when you’re not home. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings 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 programmed remotely. The greediest 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 utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle. 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 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 away. Reliability—Your 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 chosen setting.
