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 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 adaptable than traditional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 programmed remotely.
The largest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor your home’s energy usage. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When choosing 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 opportunity to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can pick an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or away.
- Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
