If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, look at installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and reduce the energy being used when you’re not there. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts 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 managed remotely.
The greediest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy consumption. 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 choosing a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage.
- Style—You shouldn’t have 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 choose 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 the times you’re at home or elsewhere.
- Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
