Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than traditional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to improve energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 programmed remotely.

The biggest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor 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 work with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle.
  • Style—You don’t want an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the opportunity to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can pick an image that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or away.
  • Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
