If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, consider 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 reduce the energy being used when you’re not there. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than conventional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 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 manage.
- 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 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 elsewhere.
- Reliability—It should have the capability to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
