Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can pick up on your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can work 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 contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to improve energy efficiency and set up 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 pick up on your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and effectively manage 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 set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be ready to operate your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
