When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats
take things one or two steps beyond. They can learn your routine and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on 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 well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even pick up on your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy.
Your HVAC system is almost always 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 direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for:
- It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
- The programmable thermostat should be ready to operate your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away.
- Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with.
- It should look nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
