If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, consider 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 decrease the energy being used when you’re not home. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than typical systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to boost energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 programmed remotely.
The largest 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 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 shouldn’t have an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the option of upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can select a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or elsewhere.
- Reliability—It should have the ability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
