Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, consider 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 reduce the energy being used when you’re not there. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than conventional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to boost energy efficiency and provide homeowners with 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 managed remotely. The largest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control 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 work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. Style—You don’t need 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 pick an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or away. Reliability—Your thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
