Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save 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 provide many beneficial qualities that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings 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 comfy.

Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get the highest 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 set your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to operate your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
