Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, 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 agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

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

  • It should be able to set your home’s temperature very close 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 manage 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 take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look good—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
