Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can pick up on 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 customizable and flexible and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial qualities that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s habits and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is most likely the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain superior 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 near 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 operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • 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 manage.
  • It should look nice—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
