Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some cash, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple beyond. They can pick up on your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial qualities that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even study your family’s behaviors and modify 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 receive top control of your HVAC system and efficiently manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to keep 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 know how to operate your heating and cooling based on whether you’re at home or absent. Your thermostat should be fitting with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and unique things like how many zones you need to manage.
