Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps more. They can study your routine 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 specially made and flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get superior control of your HVAC system and efficiently oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt 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 direct 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 take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
