Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money 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 space when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not around. 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 enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be set up remotely. The biggest energy consumer in your home is usually 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 watch for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work 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 choose 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 when you’re at home or out and about. Reliability—It 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 programmed setting.
