Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple beyond. They can learn your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce 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 qualities that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even study your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should know how to manage your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be compatible 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 nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the choice of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your design style, to use as a screensaver.
