Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, look at installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house when you need it, and cutdown 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 adaptable than conventional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to improve 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 customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely.

The largest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor your home’s energy utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage.
  • Style—You don’t want 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 a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to change the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or out and about.
  • Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
