Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few beyond. They can learn your preferences and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain the highest control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt 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 based on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and specific things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
