Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on 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 include many beneficial qualities that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback 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 patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and efficiently direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very close 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 dependent on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to take into account 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 gallery wall. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
