Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can pick up on 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 tailored and flexible and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior control of your HVAC system and successfully direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very near 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 operate your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and specific things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look good—not like a blemish in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the option of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
