Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

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

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. 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 managed remotely.

The biggest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy usage. 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 selecting a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
  • Style—You shouldn’t have 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 a photo 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 out and about.
  • Reliability—Your thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
