Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few 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 specially made and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial features that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s patterns and customize 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 get the highest 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 hold your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be ready to direct 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 unique things like how many zones you need to manage.
