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, consider installing a smart thermostat. Smart thermostats can learn your preferences and schedule. That means they can heat and cool your space when you need it, and decrease the energy being used when you’re not home. You can even interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than typical systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats were built to boost 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 customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be managed remotely.

The greediest energy consumer in your home is usually your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively control your home’s energy usage. 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 picking out a thermostat, look at 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 choice to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can choose a background that matches your decorating style or showcases your family.
  • Scheduling—Your thermostat should be able to control the temperature in your home based on when you’re at home or out and about.
  • Reliability—It should have the ability to hold the temperature close to your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the requested setting.
