Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few beyond. They can study your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior 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 know how to manage your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and special things like how many zones you need to control. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the selection of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
