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 one or two steps beyond. They can study your routine and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go further than the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is most likely the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to set your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will set the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should be able to direct your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to control.
