Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple beyond. They can learn your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on 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 provide many beneficial qualities that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s habits and tailor heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior 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 hold your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to direct your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • 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 work with.
  • It should look pleasant—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
