Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can study your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can interact 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 intended to enhance 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 styles can even pick up on your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfy.

Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and effectively direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search 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 know how to manage your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look good—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
