If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will 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 home. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than conventional systems.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications 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 set up 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 keep an eye out for:
- Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, consider 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 opportunity to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can choose a photo that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
- Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or elsewhere.
- Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
