They can learn your routine and your schedule to heat and cool your house when you require 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 features that go well beyond the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more contemporary programmable thermostat. They’re built to improve energy efficiency and set up homeowners with pointers on energy usage and alerts when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even learn your family’s patterns and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy.
