Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple farther. They can pick up on your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and efficiently oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for:

  • It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to manage your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and special things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look good—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 design style, to use as a screensaver.
