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 a few farther. They can learn your preferences and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to set 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 special things like how many zones you need to manage.
