Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can study your habits and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need 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 characteristics that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with suggestions on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain the highest control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very close to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will maintain the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.

You need to think about its model and unique things like how many zones you need to manage.
