Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save energy 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 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 adaptable than traditional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were created to improve energy efficiency and give homeowners feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. 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 generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively monitor your home’s energy usage. 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 selecting a thermostat, consider the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to control.
  • Style—You don’t want 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 whether you’re at home or out and about.
  • Reliability—A programmable 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 chosen setting.
