Smart phones make smart heating and cooling for your home
Home comfort is as close as your phone with the latest smart thermostat controls. Programmable thermostats can reduce home heating costs by up to 35% and cooling costs by up to 25%, and the iComfort line from Lennox makes it easy to create a schedule that matches homeowners' comfort level and lifestyle needs.
At the 2015 International Builders' Show, Anubhav Ranjan director, product management for Lennox, reviewed the new iComfort S30 thermostat.
Ranjan said the thermostat is remotely enabled and as easy to use as a smart phone, so homeowners can increase comfort while saving time and money – from anywhere at any time. However, the iComfort S30 smart thermostat doesn’t just control temperatures. It learns lifestyles by adapting and anticipating what homeowners want their home temperature to feel like. It will also measure the pollen count in a home and automatically run fans to reduce the risk of allergies.
