Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can pick up on your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored 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 abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback 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 habits and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is most likely the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain 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 keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • 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 ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
