Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce 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 provide many beneficial features that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and offer 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 pick up on your family’s patterns and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is almost always the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be ready to manage your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look nice—not like a blemish in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the choice of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
