Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple beyond. They can learn your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial qualities that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to set 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 dependent on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and special things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look nice—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
