In a day and age where nearly everything in the home is now digitally controlled, your HVAC system shouldn’t be left in the fold. Thermostats have gone from simple devices that are used to set the temperature in a room to pieces of technology that saves energy and increases your comfort levels.

Marsh Heating and Air Conditioning is your top HVAC company in Brooklyn Center MN that offers the latest in thermostat technology, particularly smart thermostats.

Why Upgrade to a Smart Thermostat?

A smart thermostat is equipped with sensors that discern when you are up and active in your house. This allows the device to note the times when you and your family are in the house and when you are away. It then makes the necessary adjustments to save energy.

By applying the manual and energy saving tips that these devices provide, you can set up a schedule with the ideal temperature zones to reduce your energy usage.

In addition, a smart thermostat comes with a smartphone application that allows you to check the thermostat anywhere you are connected to the internet and make changes as needed.

Certain smart thermostats also have energy reports, which provide real-time updates on how much energy you are using. It also shows how your energy usage has changed over a period of time and gives you an estimate of your running energy bill. Most of the time, these energy reports come with tips on how to manage your home’s temperatures well and save money in the process.

Features of the Lennox iComfort S30 Smart Thermostat

The iComfort® S30 is compatible with devices that feature Amazon Alexa, which means you can control your home’s environment with simple voice commands and never have to leave the couch.

Because of its perfect compatibility with Apple HomeKit, you can now control your iComfort S30 with Siri using the smartphone you already have in your pocket, as well as pair it with an iPad, Apple TV or Apple HomePod. 

The iComfort® S30’s Smart Away Mode utilizes the GPS in your smartphone to sense when you’re leaving and automatically elevates system efficiency. If you or a family member returns home, Smart Away then restores your system to a normal schedule and comfortable temperature.

With the Schedule IQ feature, you only need to program the thermostat once. Whenever there’s a change in your daily pattern, the thermostat adapts heating and cooling to match.

The iComfort® S30’s Allergen Defender monitors the air quality and pollen levels in your area, according to your ZIP code and automatically activates the fan to clean your home’s air when outdoor levels are high.

The iComfort® S30’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.

Set the iComfort® S30’s Perfect Temp, and your system will heat or cool as required to maintain your temperature in any weather, throughout the year.

Its HD Video Screen Savers automatically change to reflect current outdoor weather conditions.

The iComfort® S30’s performance reports give you historical data on your system’s operation and behavior. It follows temperature ranges, how long the system runs each day and more. Daily and hourly reports are made available online. Also, monthly reports are emailed directly to you.

Always stay in touch with home comfort with the iComfort® S30. Monitor and modify temperatures and schedules from anywhere in the world using the iComfort App and your smartphone, tablet or another web-enabled device. The app is available on the App Store and Google Play.

The iComfort® S30 maintains comfort and peace of mind by actively monitoring system operations. Should any problem ever occurs, you and your dealer will be informed.

  • it indicates when there’s a problem that needs on-the-spot attention
  • it lets you know when your filter needs to be replaced

As part of a communicating system, the iComfort® S30 can get more performance out of every piece of equipment.
