If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money 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 home when you need it, and reduce the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to improve 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 tailor your heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely.
The biggest energy consumer in your home is most often 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 look for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, look at 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 select 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 away.
- Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
