Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can study 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 customizable and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s patterns and customize 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 get the highest control of your HVAC system and efficiently oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for:

  • It should be able to set 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 dependent on whether you’re at home or away.
  • 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 manage.
  • It should look pleasant—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
