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 study 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 compliant and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and efficiently direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to keep 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 be ready to direct 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 take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
