Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re looking 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 reduce the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 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 selecting 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 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 when 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 requested setting.
