Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few beyond. They can pick up on your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back 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 provide many beneficial qualities that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be able to manage your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
