They can learn your habits and your calendar to heat and cool your house when you want it, and save on energy when you’re not home. They’re specially made and adaptable and you can work with them using your smartphone, tablet or computer. The Lennox iComfort® thermostats provide many beneficial characteristics that go past the capabilities of the traditional thermostat, or even a more up-to-date programmable thermostat. They’re built to enhance energy efficiency and set up homeowners with feedback on energy usage and warnings when the HVAC system needs attention. Users can remotely program these thermostats and some models can even pick up on your family’s behaviors and customize heating and cooling to keep things comfy. Your HVAC system is usually the greatest energy consumer in your home. With a programmable or smart thermostat, you’ll get top control of your HVAC system and successfully manage your home's energy usage.

You need to think about its model and specific things like how many zones you need to work with.
