If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities 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 house 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 responsive than typical 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 maintenance or repairs. 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 largest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor your home’s energy utilization. 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 picking out 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 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 change the temperature in your home based on whether 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 programmed setting.
