Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can study your preferences and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and flexible and you can work 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 contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. 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 look for: It should be able to set 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 able to operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be well-suited 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 pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
