Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can learn your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can interact 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 enhance 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 models can even learn your family’s patterns and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain 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 keep 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 take into account its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look good—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your décor, to use as a screensaver.
