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 will learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and cutdown the energy being used when you’re not home. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than traditional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to enhance energy efficiency and offer 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 personalize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be managed 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 utilization. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should watch 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 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 a photo that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to manage the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or out and about.
  • Reliability—Your thermostat should have the capability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
