Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can learn your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built 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 study your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive 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 keep your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and specific things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look nice—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
