Smart Thermostats03/28/2017When it comes to keeping your home comfortable and saving yourself some money, a smart thermostat is the one for you. Today’s smart thermostats take things a few more. They can learn your habits and your agenda to heat and cool your house when you want it, and cut back on energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and flexible and you can interact with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial qualities that go further than the potential of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re built to increase energy efficiency and provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs maintenance. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models 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 get superior control of your HVAC system and successfully oversee your home's energy usage.

You need to take into account its model and special things like how many zones you need to manage.
