Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re searching for 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 house when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not home. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than conventional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to enhance energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs maintenance or repairs. 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 biggest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control 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 choosing a thermostat, look at the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to handle.
  • 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 choose 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 away.
  • Reliability—A programmable thermostat should have the ability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
