Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps farther. They can learn your preferences 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 adaptable and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s habits and modify heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for:

  • It should be able to set 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 ready to manage your heating and cooling based 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 specific 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 option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
