Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy 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 pick up on your routine 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 flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial features that go well beyond the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s habits and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and efficiently direct your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to keep your home’s temperature very near to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting. The programmable thermostat should know how 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.
