Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money 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 decrease the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to boost energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 largest energy consumer in your home is generally 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 picking out a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage. Style—You shouldn’t have 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 out and about. Reliability—A programmable thermostat 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. Want to learn more about your options?
