Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can study your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even pick up on your family’s habits and modify 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 top control of your HVAC system and effectively direct 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 set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to manage your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and special things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look pleasant—not like a blemish in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
