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 a couple farther. They can learn your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and reduce 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 features that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very near 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 based on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
