Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re searching for 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 will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house 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 responsive than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings 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 most often 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 work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage. Style—You don’t need 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 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 capability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting. Want to learn more about your options?
