They’re specially made and compliant and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats contain many beneficial features that go further than the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re designed to increase energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and signals when the HVAC system needs care. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some styles can even study your family’s behaviors and tailor heating and cooling to keep things cozy.
