Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple farther. They can learn your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you want it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial features that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to hold 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 direct your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be well-suited 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 nice—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the choice of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
