Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few beyond. They can learn your habits 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 collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to set 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 based on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be compatible with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control. It should look good—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen 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.
