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, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be managed remotely. The greediest energy consumer in your home is generally 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 watch for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage. Style—You shouldn’t have 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 choose an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or elsewhere. Reliability—It should have the ability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
