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 a few farther. They can pick up on 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 customizable and compliant and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain 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 enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and effectively direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to set 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 manage your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and specific things like how many zones you need to control. It should look nice—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 supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
