Why You Should Buy the Lennox ComfortSense 5500 Touch Screen Smart Thermostat

Posted: 2021-05-25

Convenience is an essential part of modern-day living. We want to do things more effectively without having to exert that much effort. We can see this reality in many home appliances today, such as washing machines and HVAC systems. And one of the most recent technological advancements that give homeowners convenience in their homes is a smart thermostat. With this device, you can remotely yet accurately control your indoor temperatures.

Four Seasons Air Specialists is your trusted HVAC company in Forest Lake MN. We work to make life much easier for you, and we do that by offering unparalleled services and state-of-the-art devices, including smart thermostats.


To some, upgrading to a smart thermostat may seem like overkill; it isn’t. It’s actually a great investment, given the several benefits it offers. A smart thermostat isn’t only smart, it’s also practical. Since it can learn your daily schedules and adjust your indoor settings based on your daily timetable, a smart thermostat helps you save money by increasing your energy efficiency. It can sense when you are busy at home, when you’re away, asleep, and even how many people occupy the house at any given time. Then, it sets the temperatures appropriately (with energy efficiency in mind). With this kind of technology, your HVAC system does not have to work overtime to produce the temperatures you don’t need.

Another benefit of using a smart thermostat is improved indoor air quality. It helps you inhale cleaner, safer air by letting you know when filters require cleaning or replacing, or even when your unit needs a maintenance call. Most smart thermostats also can improve your home’s humidity levels, which adds to your comfort. Having the right humidity levels at home is vitally important to keep your skin properly moisturized as well as your electronic and wooden items safe from the effects of humidification issues.

Here’s an excellent smart thermostat from Lennox, available at Four Seasons Air Specialists.
