Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple farther. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and efficiently direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for:

  • It should be able to keep 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 ready to direct your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to manage.
  • It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
