Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps more. They can pick up on your preferences and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain superior control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be ready to operate your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away. 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 control. It should look nice—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the choice of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
