Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When 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 beyond. They can pick up on your preferences and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even learn your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfortable. Your HVAC system is most likely the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll receive superior control of your HVAC system and efficiently manage your home's energy usage.
