Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your home when you need it, and decrease 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 were created to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications 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 greediest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control your home’s energy utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should look 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 control. 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 select an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or out and about. 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 programmed setting.
