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, think about 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 cutdown the energy being used when you’re not there. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 biggest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor 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 easily integrate with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, consider 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 pick an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or elsewhere. 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 programmed setting.
