Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple beyond. They can learn your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s habits and tailor heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain superior control of your HVAC system and effectively direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look 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 know how to operate 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 control.
  • It should look pleasant—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your design style, to use as a screensaver.
