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 couple beyond. They can learn your preferences and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s habits and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is usually the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top 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 manage your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to consider its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look pleasant—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 adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
