Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can learn 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 compliant and you can work 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 up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest 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 search for:

  • It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very similar 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 direct your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and special things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look pleasant—not like a blemish in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the choice of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
