Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and provide 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 pick up on your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. 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 successfully direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to keep 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 be ready to operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and specific things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look nice—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the choice of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
