Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps more. They can learn your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want 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 up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is most likely the largest 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 look for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should know how to direct your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look good—not like an eyesore 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 complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
