Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few beyond. They can study your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial qualities that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s habits and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and efficiently 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 keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to manage your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and special things like how many zones you need to manage.
  • It should look nice—not like a monstrosity 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 décor, to use as a screensaver.
