Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

 

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple beyond. They can pick up on your routine and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is most likely the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for:

  • It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
  • The programmable thermostat should know how to operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and special things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
