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

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed 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 tailor your heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. All of the models can be programmed remotely.

The biggest energy consumer in your home is generally your HVAC system. A programmable or smart thermostat can help you more effectively manage your home’s energy consumption. If you’re looking for a smart thermostat, here’s what you should keep an eye out for:
  • Compatibility—Your thermostat should easily work with your HVAC system. When picking out a thermostat, think about the model and other factors such as how many zones you need to manage.
  • Style—You shouldn’t have 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 control the temperature in your home based on the times you’re at home or away.
  • 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.
