If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy 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 home when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than typical systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and notifications 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 programmed remotely.
The greediest 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 consumption. 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 choosing a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
- Style—You don’t need 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 select an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or out and about.
- Reliability—A programmable 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 programmed setting.
