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 farther. They can pick up on your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive top control of your HVAC system and efficiently oversee 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 direct your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look pleasant—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that gallery wall. iComfort gives you the option of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
