Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps farther. They can learn your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and efficiently direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be ready to direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control. It should look pleasant—not like a blemish in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the choice of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
