Decided to update our 20 year old non-programmable thermostat. Did a bit of research and this one from Lux stood out. It has a large easy to see display with backlight, is programmable for all seven separate days with four time zones per day, and works even with heat pumps.And it's very reasonably priced.We have geo-thermal heat and cooling, and this works perfectly. The wiring up part worried me, but I found the included diagram that matched mine, added the extra jumper wire as depicted, and was in business.It's great to be able to see the display from far away, and even better to know we're saving energy by having it reduce heating while we're away, sleeping, etc.It's easy to override the program if you need to. This thermostat can do a lot if you want to learn all of its capabilities.
Awesome thermostat! I know it's geeky to get excited about a thermostat but this we very easy to install and it has been working perfectly for a months now. Very simple and intuitive to operate, even my wife can do it (and that's saying a lot!) Would highly recommend it, GREAT value for this price.
After reading up on some forums about adding a thermostat to my pellet stove it seemed the Lux TX1500a was the one to get.That one seemed to be discontinued so I took a chance and went for this.Install was easy, though the included instructions are sort of a cheat sheet version of the manual, but got the job done. If you need more in depth instructions you can download the whole manual at LUXs website which made it easy.So pellet stoves need to run a cycle, they shouldn't be kicking on and off all the time or you'll put wear on your ingniter and other parts. I called LUX about this and got a very helpful answer and was quickly told what to set it to make it work better for my application. I read some complaints about LUXs customer service namely the call back thing. Well I missed the call back and called back the number given, pressed 7 (per their instructions) and got a tech guy right away.All in all a nice modern looking and simple to operate thermostat. I'd buy another.
Easy installation, great tech support, and effortless to program. Works great and offers many settings for customization.
