Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re searching for for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities at the same time, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and reduce 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 traditional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to boost energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs care. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely.

The largest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle.
  • Style—You shouldn’t have 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 a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on the times 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 programmed setting.
