What is iComfort?
Lennox’s iComfort family of products works together to help you keep your home or place of business comfortable and energy-efficient. The iComfort Thermostat works with compatible iComfort equipment to automatically control heating and cooling based on your personal preferences. Your iComfort system is accessible at your fingertips while you’re on the go when you download the iComfort app that allows you to make adjustments to your home’s heating and cooling. Lennox’s iComfort suite can be combined with other products to allow you to control other factors, including humidity and air purification.
Who Should Consider iComfort?
There are several advantages to implementing iComfort into your HVAC system. Whether you keep the same schedule every day or if your heating and cooling need change throughout the week, smart thermostats like iComfort allow you to program your furnace and air conditioner to heat or cool during certain times of day as the temperature fluctuates or only when you are at home. Setting your programmable thermostat according to your schedule means you are required to make fewer adjustments. Fewer adjustments can translate to less wear and tear on your home’s HVAC system. If you have a zone HVAC system, iComfort can further improve upon the efficiency zone systems create by allowing you to regulate the temperature of each room or zone in your home. Overall, iComfort is a modern, versatile system that can benefit a variety of households and businesses that are seeking to increase energy efficiency, improve comfort and air quality and save money on energy bills.
How iComfort Saves Our Customers Money
By making even minor adjustments, you can reduce your energy consumption and save money on your heating and cooling bills. Lowering the temperature in your home by 7-10 degrees when you are asleep or away from home can translate to savings of up to 10% annually on your energy bill. During warmer months, you can employ a similar strategy by keeping your home warmer while you are away. The iComfort thermostat makes it easy to make these adjustments to your indoor temperature by automatically raising and lowering the temperature so you won’t have to.
Are There Customers Who Shouldn’t Consider iComfort?
Part of delivering excellent service that is worthy of Lennox’s iComfort Sales Award is helping customers determine whether an iComfort Smart Thermostat is right for their individual HVAC systems. Our staff and technicians at We Care Plumbing, Heating, & Air are committed to honesty and integrity. Therefore, we only recommend the products and services our customers really need. While Lennox products generally perform well for our customers, there are some cases in which we would not recommend an iComfort system for the customer’s existing HVAC system.
Programmable Thermostats in Homes With Heat Pumps
There is a potential downside when using a programmable thermostat like iComfort in homes that have a heat pump. Heat pumps cool similarly to the way air conditioners operate. Therefore, adjusting the temperature upward either manually or with a programmable thermostat is an effective way to conserve energy. However, when a heat pump is in heating mode, lowering the temperature may actually reduce the heat pump’s efficiency, thereby canceling out any gained efficiency.
Radiant Floor Heat and Programmable Thermostats
Radiant floor heating comes in two varieties: electric and hydronic. In a hydronic system, hot water circulates through the system to distribute heat through the floor. In an electric radiant floor heating system, the electricity heats various coils within mats that conduct the heat and distribute it throughout the system. Because radiant floor heating takes longer to heat up, most hydronic radiant floor systems are incompatible with smart thermostats. Electric systems with floor sensors are becoming more common; these systems are more likely to be able to be used with a programmable thermostat.
Is iComfort Right for You?
The best way to determine whether an iComfort Smart Thermostat is right for you is to schedule an appointment with one of our knowledgeable technicians. If you are constructing a new home or replacing your existing HVAC system, we can help you chose the most appropriate, energy-efficient equipment for your project. If you are looking to upgrade your HVAC system or reduce your energy expenditure, we will analyze your home’s energy consumption and determine whether iComfort can help you achieve your goals. If iComfort isn’t right for you, we offer an array of other products that may be a compatible fit for your home.
