Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save money at the same time, think about 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 there. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and adaptable than conventional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 biggest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate with your HVAC system. When choosing a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
  • Style—You don’t want 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 background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on whether you’re at home or elsewhere.
  • Reliability—Your thermostat 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 chosen setting.
