Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can study your preferences and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even pick up on your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

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

  • It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very near 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 dependent on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look nice—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
