If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, look at installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than typical systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts 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 managed remotely.
The biggest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, consider 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 choose 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 capacity to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
