Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can pick up on your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and adaptable and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to enhance energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s habits and tailor heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is almost always the biggest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and successfully 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 operate your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or not. Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to think about its model and special things like how many zones you need to work with.
