They can study your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you require it, and save 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 provide many beneficial features 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 provide homeowners with pointers on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs attention. 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.
