Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can pick up on your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get superior control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be able to operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and specific things like how many zones you need to control. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
