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, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not there. 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 built to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with 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 managed remotely. The biggest 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 usage. 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, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control. Style—You don’t want 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 an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family. Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or elsewhere. Reliability—Your thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
