Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home cozy and saving yourself some expenses, a smart thermostat is your best friend. Today’s smart thermostats take things one or two steps beyond. They can pick up on your habits and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you need it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and compliant and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some types can even study your family’s patterns and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfy.
