Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can study your preferences 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 adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. 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 almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very similar 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 not. Your thermostat should be well-suited 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 gallery 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.
