If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money 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 home. 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 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 managed remotely.
The greediest energy consumer in your home is most often 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 be compatible with your HVAC system. When choosing 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 opportunity to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can pick a photo that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or out and about.
- Reliability—Your 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 requested setting.
