They can pick up on your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require it, and reduce energy when you’re not home. They’re tailored and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial characteristics that go further than the abilities 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 habits and tailor heating and cooling to keep things comfortable.
