When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats
take things a few farther. They can pick up on your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and modify 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 gain the highest control of your HVAC system and effectively direct 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 set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.
- The programmable thermostat should be able to manage your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or absent.
- Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with.
- It should look pleasant—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
