3 Amazing Thermostats in 3 Price Ranges to Fit Your Budget
At Lancaster Brothers Heating and Cooling, we’re proud to sell and install Lennox brand air conditioners and furnaces. Many of our customers who have purchased a Lennox system ask us which thermostat they should choose to complement their new equipment. The Lennox Comfortsense models are the most popular. Here is a breakdown of the three models in the Comfortsense line. Hopefully, comparing the three will help you decide which one is right for you.
We will go from least expensive to most expensive and explain all of the features that each one possesses. That way, you can decide which features are important to you and your family.
iComfort® M30 Thermostat
The iComfort M30 is a simple and stylish smart thermostat. It is compatible with both Lennox non-iComfort equipment as well as other brands of furnaces and air conditioners. It is also Amazon Alexa compatible, making it easy to use voice commands to control it with Amazon Echo or Amazon Dot devices. It also features a handy touchscreen which also allows you to use your voice to speak commands as well as a remote control function which lets you control it from anywhere with your smartphone.
It takes comfort to a new level by working with your whole-house humidity control system to adjust the humidity level. It will even alert you if the system needs service or maintenance. The “Smart Away” mode uses your location services on your phone to know when you come and go and adjusts the temperature to save energy and maximize your comfort. It even provides Performance Reports. It summarizes the performance of the system and sends monthly summary emails showing month-to-month heating and cooling usage comparison and active service alerts
iComfort E30 Thermostat
This smart thermostat is the most versatile thermostat for your comfort needs. It boasts all the features of the M30 model, but also adds a 7” color touchscreen weather screen saver that not only displays the outdoor temperature but graphics that tell you what the weather is like outside. Not only that, but with its Auto (Perfect Temp) feature, it automatically decides between heating and cooling, but requires just one setpoint.
The weather-on-demand feature provides the current outdoor temperature as well as a 5 or 7-day forecast. Its Climate IQ technology monitors indoor and outdoor conditions then automatically uses your AC or heat pump to remove excess humidity keeping your home comfortable year round. It even features an Allergen Defender. It monitors the air quality and pollen levels in your local ZIP code and automatically turns the fan on to clean the home’s air when outdoor levels are high.
iComfort S30 Thermostat
This ultra-smart thermostat is the ultimate controller for precise comfort. It provides all of the wonderful features of the E30 including touchscreen, weather screensavers, weather on demand, and remote control, but It is only compatible with the Lennox iComfort enabled, variable capacity equipment to offer the highest level of comfort and overall system performance. This also allows it to add advance alerts. Instead of just telling you when the system needs service or maintenance, it will monitor all of the system’s components and use advanced diagnostics to identify the issue.
The S30 model also features the PureAir™ S Purification System. Built-in sensors monitor the life of both the filter and the Purifier UVA light so you don’t have to. When it’s time to change either, the PureAir™ S lets you know through the thermostat.
