Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can learn your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable 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 potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s habits 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 superior control of your HVAC system and effectively manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold 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 know how to operate your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to take into account 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 gallery wall. 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.
