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, 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 reduce 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 traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 monitor 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 be compatible with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. 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 select an image 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 away. Reliability—It should have the ability to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
