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, look at 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 cutdown the energy being used when you’re not there. 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 boost 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 managed remotely. The largest energy consumer in your home is generally 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 look 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 manage. 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 choose 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 when you’re at home or out and about. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capacity 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?
