Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple farther. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and modify 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 get top control of your HVAC system and effectively direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very similar 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 operate your heating and cooling based 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 specific things like how many zones you need to control. It should look pleasant—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
