Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few beyond. They can learn your preferences and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s patterns and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is most likely the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get the highest control of your HVAC system and effectively direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be ready to operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look nice—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the choice of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that complements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
