Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, look at installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house 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 conventional systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize 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 manage your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should look for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle. 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 pick 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 elsewhere. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting. Want to learn more about your options?
