If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, look at 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 interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than traditional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize 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 monitor 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 work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
- 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 choose an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or away.
- Reliability—It 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 chosen setting.
