Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can pick up on your habits and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and compliant 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 abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain superior control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be able 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 specific things like how many zones you need to control. It should look good—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
