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 one or two steps farther. They can study your routine and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you need it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and adaptable and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and modify 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 receive top control of your HVAC system and effectively oversee your home's energy usage.
