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 a few farther. They can learn your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and efficiently oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should know how to manage your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and specific things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look good—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
