Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can pick up on your preferences and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial features that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get superior control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to hunt for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be able to direct your heating and cooling centered 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 unique things like how many zones you need to work with. It should look good—not like a monstrosity in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of using a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that supplements your ambiance, to use as a screensaver.
