Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can learn your preferences and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings 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 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 get the highest 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 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 operate your heating and cooling based 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 special things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look pleasant—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
