Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a couple more. They can study your habits and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re customizable and flexible and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial qualities that go past the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to improve energy efficiency and offer homeowners with feedback on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even learn your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things cozy. Your HVAC system is usually the largest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll gain top control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage. Here are some things to search for: It should be able to hold your home’s temperature very similar to its setting—the iComfort series thermostats will keep the temperature within 0.5 degree of its setting.

You need to take into account its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with.
