Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible 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 abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is usually the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get the highest control of your HVAC system and effectively manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be ready to operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away. 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 work with. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the choice of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
