Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps farther. They can pick up on your preferences and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance 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 styles can even learn your family’s behaviors 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 gain superior control of your HVAC system and efficiently direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for:

  • It should be able to hold 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 direct 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 good—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
