Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than conventional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and tailor your heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be set up remotely.

The largest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control your home’s energy usage. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
  • Style—You shouldn’t have an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the option of upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can select an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or away.
  • Reliability—It should have the capability to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
