Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps more. They can pick up on your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive top control of your HVAC system and effectively direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very close 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 operate your heating and cooling centered on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and specific things like how many zones you need to control. It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
