Smart Thermostats

Technology

When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and adaptable and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.

The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even pick up on your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy.

Your HVAC system is usually the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and effectively manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for:

  • It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very near 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 direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent.
  • Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
  • It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
