Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, look at installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to 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 home. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than conventional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to improve energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and tailor your heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed 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 usage. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, look at 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 option of 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 change the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or out and about. 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 programmed setting.
