Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can study your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you want it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and efficiently manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should know how to operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be well-suited 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 an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
