Did you know that there are things a smart thermostat can do that your ordinary thermostat just can’t? Smart thermostats are more than just devices that control your home’s temperature. They are now engineered to make your HVAC systems more efficient and your life much easier.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your preferred HVAC company in Crystal MN that offers the latest in smart thermostat technology. We are an authorized dealer of Lennox iComfort Series of smart thermostats, which are some of the best on the market.

Contrasting Analog, Digital, and Smart Thermostats


Analog or manual thermostats are quickly becoming obsolete. These are old thermostats that get the job done but they are not as precise in terms of temperature readings. This results in more energy use and higher utility bills.

Also, each time you leave or enter the house, you will need to manually adjust the thermostat. Because of this inconvenience, more and more homeowners are moving on from this outdated type of technology.

Digital or programmable thermostats give you the ability to schedule and set your temperature preferences for each day of the week. Say goodbye to manual thermostat adjustments! These devices help you save money on energy and increase your comfort levels. Having said that, higher upfront cost and compatibility are some of the issues you have to consider before buying one. They also work only when they are programmed.

Smart thermostats are designed for today’s busy, eco-friendly, and high-tech families. They offer excellent temperature control, wireless connectivity, and in some models, geofencing and energy reports. The device will do the adjustments for you, making sure you’re both energy-efficient and absolutely comfortable.

Features of the Lennox iComfort M30 Smart Thermostat

The Lennox iComfort M30 is a universal thermostat that works with non-iComfort-enabled and non-Lennox products.

One-touch Away Mode on the iComfort® M30 overrides your regular programming schedule with a single touch and sets back your heating and cooling setpoints to save energy.

The iComfort® M30’s Smart Away™ Mode uses the location services in your smartphone to detect when you’re leaving and automatically adjusts the temperature to a more energy-efficient setting. When you come home, Smart Away returns the system to its normal schedule and a more comfortable temperature.

The iComfort® M30 is compatible with devices with Amazon Alexa, so you can use your voice to control your HVAC system. Smart, convenient and easy to use, perfect comfort is just a voice command away. Learn how iComfort thermostats work with Alexa.

The iComfort® M30’s Feels Like™ feature creates the temperature you want to feel, not just the temperature you set—much like the “Feels Like” temperature in a weather report. So when you set it to 72°F, it feels like 72°.

Remote control of your home’s environment is easy with the iComfort M30. Monitor and adjust temperatures and schedules from anywhere in the world using the iComfort App and your smartphone, tablet or other web-enabled devices. Available on the App Store and Google Play.

Its Smooth Setback Recovery feature senses extreme temperature changes and begins the temperature recovery process up to 2 hours before the programmed time.

Schedule IQ™  allows you to only program your thermostat once. Whenever there’s a change in your routine, the thermostat adapts heating and cooling to match.

Filter Reminder reminds you when its time to change the filter, which helps maintain a cleaner indoor air.

Its Auto Changeover feature decides between heating and cooling operation, depending on indoor temperature.

The iComfort M30 comes with a large, easy-to-use display with adjustable brightness.

Its Dual-Fuel Capability increases the efficiency of dual-fuel heating systems by automatically alternating between gas and electric operation.

Energy Reports show how often and how long the heating or cooling has run for the month.

Remote Capability monitors and adjusts temperatures and schedules from anywhere in the world using the iComfort App and your smartphone, tablet, or other web-enabled devices.

The iComfort M30’s Email Alerts feature provides detailed diagnostics and reminds your dealer when service is needed.

Remote Monitoring allows Lennox to analyze your system from anywhere via their computer or mobile devices.

Remote Troubleshooting makes it possible for dealers to use their mobile device to adjust system parameters to fix problems, without ever making a trip to your home.

This product comes with a 5-Year Limited Warranty.
