Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you want it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s habits and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.

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

  • It should be able to set your home’s temperature very similar 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 operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look good—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
