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 can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce 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 conventional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 largest 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 watch 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 manage.
- 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 select a photo 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 elsewhere.
- Reliability—It should have the capability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
