If you’re on the lookout 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 have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce the energy being used when you’re not there. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than typical systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to boost energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings 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 most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor your home’s energy usage. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work 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 need 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 pick a background 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 away.
- Reliability—Your 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 chosen setting.
