Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few beyond. They can study your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s habits and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and effectively manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for:

  • It should be able to set your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should be ready to direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not.
  • Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to manage.
  • It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
