Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can study your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial features that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s patterns and modify heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest 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 look for: It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very near 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 direct your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about 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 gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
