They can study your preferences 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 customizable and adaptable and you can collaborate with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats include many beneficial qualities that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more modern programmable thermostat. They’re intended to improve 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 types can even pick up on your family’s habits and modify heating and cooling to keep things comfy.
