Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you want it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive 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 set 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 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 consider its model and special things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look nice—not like a monstrosity 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.
