Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can study your routine and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even study your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior control of your HVAC system and effectively direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for:

  • It should be able to set your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
