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, think about installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats have the ability to learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce 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 responsive than typical systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to enhance 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 customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be set up 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 utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. When selecting a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
  • Style—You don’t need an eyesore in the middle of your home. iComfort series thermostats give you the option of upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can select 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 elsewhere.
  • Reliability—It should have the capability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the programmed setting.
