If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy 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 home. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than typical systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 managed 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 watch for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When choosing 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 manage the temperature in your home based on the times 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.
