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, look at 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 decrease 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 responsive than traditional systems.

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

The greediest 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 consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should look for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage.
  • Style—You don’t need an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the choice to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can select an image 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 elsewhere.
  • 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.
