Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple beyond. They can study your preferences 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 adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial features that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even study your family’s behaviors and modify 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 superior control of your HVAC system and efficiently manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to set 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 able to manage 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 work with. It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that gallery wall. 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.
