Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can study your preferences 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 flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s habits and modify 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 similar 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 centered on whether you’re at home or not. 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 work with. It should look pleasant—not like a blemish in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
