Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re looking for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy at the same time, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your home when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even control them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and flexible than conventional 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 attention. Some models can learn the patterns within your household and personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be set up remotely.

The greediest 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 look for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily integrate 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 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 elsewhere.
  • Reliability—Your thermostat should have the capacity to hold the temperature right by your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
