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 few more. They can learn your habits and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance 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 models can even learn your family’s habits and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain superior control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to keep 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 able to manage your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and specific things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
