If you’re on the lookout 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 space 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 conventional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. 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 most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy utilization. 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 selecting a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage.
- 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 a photo 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 elsewhere.
- Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
