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 farther. They can study your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce 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 include many beneficial qualities that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and provide 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 study your family’s behaviors 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 superior control of your HVAC system and efficiently oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to keep 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 be ready to direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be compatible 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 an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
