Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can study your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and flexible and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even study your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and effectively manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be ready to operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
