If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy 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 space when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than typical systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built 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 customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely.
The largest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control your home’s energy usage. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle.
- Style—You don’t need an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the choice 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 out and about.
- Reliability—It should have the capability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
