Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps more. They can study your habits and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy.

Your HVAC system is most likely the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain superior control of your HVAC system and effectively manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for:

  • It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to manage your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
