Smart Thermostats Posted March 28, 2017 If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and cutdown 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 built to improve energy efficiency and give 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 managed 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 look for: Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage. Style—You don’t want 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 out and about. Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting. Want to see more about your options? Call the experts at Morgner Inc.
