Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can study your routine and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance 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 models can even study your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and successfully 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 keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be able to operate 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 specific 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 using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
