If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and decrease 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 adaptable than traditional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed 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 keep an eye out for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
- Style—You shouldn’t have 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 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 when you’re at home or away.
- Reliability—It should have the capacity to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
