Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even study your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get superior control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for:

  • It should be able to set your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
