Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money 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 space when you need it, and decrease 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 traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built 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 customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely. The largest energy consumer in your home is usually 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 look for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle. Style—You shouldn’t have 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 choose 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 the times 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 requested setting. Want to see more about your options?
