Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, consider 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 home. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to enhance energy efficiency and offer 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 customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely. The largest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy usage. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle. Style—You don’t need 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 choose a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or away. Reliability—It should have the capability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
