Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps more. They can learn your routine and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial qualities that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s behaviors and tailor 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 the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for:

  • It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider 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 kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
