If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities 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 house when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not home. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications 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 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 control your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle.
- 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 an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or out and about.
- Reliability—It should have the ability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
