Smart Thermostats

March 28, 2017

If you’re on the lookout for a way to keep your home comfortable and save on your utilities 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 house when you need it, and reduce the energy being used when you’re not around. You can even manage them using your smartphone, tablet or computer—making them more accessible and responsive than conventional systems.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats are designed to boost energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and notifications when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 largest energy consumer in your home is usually 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 watch 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 choice to upload a personal photo to use as a screensaver. You can pick 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 the times you’re at home or elsewhere.
  • Reliability—It should have the ability to hold the temperature near your desired setting. The iComfort thermostat keeps the temperature within 0.5 degrees of the chosen setting.
