Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities 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 home 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 typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and notifications 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 managed remotely. The biggest 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 selecting a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. 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 pick a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or away. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting. Want to hear more about your options?
