If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money 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 home when you need it, and reduce 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 responsive than traditional 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 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 greediest energy consumer in your home is generally 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 watch for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When selecting 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 choice to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can pick a photo that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or elsewhere.
- Reliability—Your thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
