Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, consider 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 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 flexible than conventional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be managed remotely. The biggest energy consumer in your home is most often 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 keep an eye out for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, consider 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 choice to 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 control the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or out and about. Reliability—It should have the capacity to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
