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 few more. They can learn your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide 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 pick up on your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for:

  • It should be able to hold 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 direct your heating and cooling centered 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 specific things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
