If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, think about 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 there. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than typical systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to improve energy efficiency and give 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 biggest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor 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 selecting a thermostat, think about 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 option of upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can choose a photo that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or elsewhere.
- Reliability—It should have the capacity to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
