Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is what you need. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps farther. They can learn your preferences and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial features that go well beyond the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the biggest 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 hunt for: It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very near 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 direct your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or away. 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 manage.
