Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home warm and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few farther. They can study your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and compliant and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial characteristics that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re intended to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is almost always the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get the highest 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 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 consider its model and unique things like how many zones you need to manage.
