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 a few beyond. They can pick up on your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed 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 habits and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is most likely the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain 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 specific things like how many zones you need to manage. It should look nice—not like an eyesore in the middle of that kitchen wall. iComfort gives you the option of uploading a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
