Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can pick up on your routine and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require 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 characteristics that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s habits and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is usually the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get superior control of your HVAC system and efficiently direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold 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 direct your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and special things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look good—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
