Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can learn your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need 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 provide many beneficial qualities that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s habits and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfy.

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 search for:

  • It should be able to set your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and special things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look good—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the option of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
