I hope you all enter the giveaway and participate in the Twitter Party because The Ultimate Comfort System™ heating and cooling is truly remarkable. Maybe you remember way, way, way back in my old life, I used to be an engineer. Well, I actually used to work in the heating and cooling industry. I may have nerded out a little bit when I read about this system and how it works. Let me see if I can break this down a little bit. Firstly, a traditional system is typically ON or OFF. You usually hear it kick on, yes? It’s not an exact science, really. If it’s summertime and you set a thermostat at say 70 degrees, you’ll probably see a swing of temperatures above and below 70 throughout the day. When the temperature registers too high, it blasts the cold air until the thermometer reads below 70 again then shuts off. Then, it will creep slowly back up over 70, and the cycle continues. It’s like a pendulum swinging back and forth with the temperature setting in the middle. You’re always going to have some variance. Or think of it like overspray from spray paint. The A/C sorta blasts without much control and it overshoots. Many cars actually have a more advanced system than in your home because they have a variable air flow system (that knob that you turn for the fan speed). The other issue with most systems, is that it functions on either AC or HEAT. Have you ever overshot in one direction and had to open a window? The Ultimate Comfort System™ from Lennox® solves both problems! It has a variable fan speed and perfectly balanced heated AND cooled air so that the temperature actually stays where the thermostat setting is. No Goldilocks syndrome! There’s actually a really cool visual of this temperature control here. Plus, the XC25 unit is super quiet AND efficient. I don’t know about you, but if I’m near the back window, our non-Lennox® unit sounds like a lawnmower! If all that was too science-y for you, just take my word for it – it truly is a revolutionary product that will maximize your energy savings. You should definitely enter to win one!
