Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

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

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created 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 set up remotely.

The largest energy consumer in your home is most often your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy utilization. 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 picking out a thermostat, think about 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 opportunity to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can pick 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 when you’re at home or away.
  • Reliability—Your 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 programmed setting.
