When 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 a couple more. 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 customizable and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer.
The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go past the abilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback 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 habits and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy.
Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive top control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to look for:
- It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very near 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 direct your heating and cooling dependent on whether you’re at home or away.
- Your thermostat should be well-suited with your HVAC system. You need to take into account its model and special things like how many zones you need to manage.
- It should look pleasant—not like an eyesore in the middle of that living room mantel. iComfort gives you the selection of adding a personal photo, like a family portrait or something that adds to your décor, to use as a screensaver.
