Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can learn your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and adaptable and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very near 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 not. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and specific things like how many zones you need to control. It should look pleasant—not like a blemish in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your design style, to use as a screensaver.
