Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy.

Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully direct 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 set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to manage 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 think about its model and special things like how many zones you need to manage.
  • It should look nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
