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 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 around. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than typical systems. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to enhance 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 set up remotely. The biggest energy consumer in your home is most often 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 watch for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle. Style—You don’t want 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 change the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or away. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting. Want to hear more about your options?
