The TX1500E can be an energy-efficient choice that can save your family approximately 33% on energy bills. It comes preprogrammed with a default energy-conservation heating and cooling schedule that's designed to save up to $180 in energy costs over one year.
The TX1500E works with most 24-volt heating and air-conditioning systems, including single-stage heating and cooling, heat pumps without auxiliary or emergency heat, central air, and Millivolt wall heaters/ gas fireplaces.
Easy Programming Options
This thermostat is very easy to use, with a large, electroluminescent display that clearly shows the current day, time, temperature, and filter status. A simple push of the soft-touch "H" button on the front panel will show the relative humidity in the room in addition to the room temperature.
Special programming options allow you to store temporary programs that can be used for long weekends, vacations, and holidays. Additionally, the TX1500 E features a patented speed dial that allows you to quickly and easily program up to four different periods per day--morning, afternoon, evening, and night.
For added flexibility, you can program a different schedule for weekdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
And thanks to the keyboard lockout feature, the TX1500E is great for households with small children or other potential unauthorized users.
Convenient Filter Life Indicator
For added convenience, the 100% mercury-free TX1500E uses a graphic filter usage monitor that allows you to set filter usage limits from zero to 180 days in 30-day increments, and also 365 days in duration.
The remaining filter life can be displayed in either calendar days or percent remaining, in addition to being shown with a graphical filter monitor indicator.

After researching thermostats, I replaced my builder-grade 1 week thermostats with a couple of Lux 1500E units. This was one of Consumer Reports' best buy models from last year (the other also a Lux). Additionally, I liked Lux's programming dial which simplifies programming; with the dial, there are fewer arcane button press combinations to deal with. Installation was simple and straightforward. The display on the 1500E is fairly large and has an electroluminescent back light that's activated by pressing any button. I'm farsighted but can read the display without my glasses. The 1500E is a 5-1-1 thermostat but also includes a "special" schedule that can used for vacation or holiday making this a 5-1-1-1 thermostat.
I found programming to be quick and simple and the unit works as advertised. I have one complaint and one quirk to mention. The complaint: The operating instructions aren't the best. In particular, there is precious little explanation of the "swing" function or what the swing numbers actually mean. I sent an email to Lux and received a phone call the next day with a thorough explanation. Fantastic customer service!! For the record, the swing setting numbers correlate to quarter degrees (the instructions should state this but don't). The default setting is 1 meaning the thermostat will cycle when the temperature deviates .25 degrees. Keeps the house temperature constant but heat or AC will constantly cycle. Setting the swing to 4 will cause heat or AC to turn on when temperature deviates 1 degree (4 X .25) from the set temperature. You can set the swing up to a value of 9 (2.Read more ›
All three Lux units displayed different temperatures from each other. One of the three units was accurate. The temperature is easy to calibrate by setting the dial to run mode, and while holding the up button, pressing the down button once. A screen pops up allowing the temp to be set plus or minus five degrees. In this case the temperature on one of the units was 2 degrees high, so I entered -2 on the calibration, and since calibrating the temperature readings have been accurate.
The humidity readings for all three units were initially off by up to 7 percentage points. The unit allows for calibration up to +/- 15 percentage points by setting the dial to run, pressing the H button, and while holding down the up button, pressing the down button once. After calibrating the units, they are still off by a couple percent, and occasionally display a ridiculous reading like 95% relative humidity (RH) when the actual RH is 50-60%, but for the most part the RH is close enough.
The humidity reading on the unit does not display automatically. The "H" button must be pushed to display relative humidity. To clarify, the thermostat runs off temperature only, i.e. there isn't an option to run the air conditioner until the relative humidity reaches a certain level.
The display on the unit is puzzling. On the left the time is displayed prominently, and in a much smaller font the temperature displays on the right.Read more ›
The TX1500E provides 5/1/1 (Mon-Fri/Sat/Sun) and 'Special' modes, each of which allows temperature programming changes at four different times. 'Special' mode lets you switch over to a range of settings that you've programmed for when you want to quickly override daily settings. I like the notched circle molded into the door which prevents the door from closing in 'Special' mode, a passive reminder which lessens the chance of you accidentally leaving it there long-term.
I am quite pleased with this thermostat and recommend it to anyone who wants a programmable thermostat with a solid, basic feature set. Choose a different model if you want to set Mon-Fri individually, or switch automatically between 'Cool' and 'Heat' modes: I have no need for either feature and appreciate the programming simplicity of this model.
* The new thermostat - as did the existing one - rocked a bit on the wall when I pushed buttons. I felt this would eventually work the drywall screw anchors loose so I stuck two strip of thin foam on the back of the base - horizontally above and below the screws - before final installation: it now feels nice and tight on the wall!
* Internal clearance is tight so take extra care when routing wires and stuffing excess back into the wall or it's a pain snapping the main unit into the base. This was probably the most time-consuming stage of the installation.
