Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple farther. They can learn your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for:

  • It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be able to manage your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with.
  • It should look nice—not like an eyesore 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.
