Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps farther. They can pick up on your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can collaborate 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 set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even pick up on your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy.

Your HVAC system is most likely 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 hunt for:

  • It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very close 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 away.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and special things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look nice—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
