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 more. They can learn your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial qualities that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s habits and modify heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get 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 set your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be able to direct your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or away. 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 control. It should look nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
