Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can learn your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and adaptable 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 built to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy.

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

  • It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to operate 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 take into account its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look nice—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
