Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can pick up on 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 tailored and adaptable and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s patterns and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive top control of your HVAC system and efficiently manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search 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 be able to manage your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and special things like how many zones you need to control. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that living room mantel. 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.
