Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully direct 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 maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should know how to direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and specific things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that gallery wall. 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.
