Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can pick up on your preferences and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on 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 features that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and efficiently manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should know how to direct your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look nice—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 supplements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
