Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can study your preferences and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on 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 include many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals 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 cozy.

Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get superior control of your HVAC system and efficiently oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search 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 ready to manage your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or not.
  • 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 nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
