Over three years of research and development went into the creation of Lennox Intl.’s icomfort Wi-Fi™ thermostat. It was chosen by contractor judges as the 2013 Dealer Design winner of the Residential Controls category. The thermostat is approximately 1 inch thick and features a bright, high-definition touchscreen that measures 7 inches. Customizable skins allow the icomfort Wi-Fi to fit in with any décor and the one-touch away mode helps users reduce energy and save money when no one is home.
“We used multiple different research methods to help us specify and design the icomfort Wi-Fi. Before any development started, multiple qualitative focus groups were held to assure the product would meet contractor and homeowner needs,” said Bobby DiFulgentiz, director of product management, controls, Lennox Intl. “What really helped set this product apart was the constant market research throughout the development of the product. We checked and rechecked our assumptions with contractor and consumer focus groups throughout the development of the icomfort Wi-Fi.”
