This is more than a review and experiences with the Lux Products TX9600TS. It includes what was important to me when looking for a new thermostat, the short list of the others I researched, and why I chose this model. The reason for replacing my previous thermostat, a Honeywell T87 style mercury type thermostat, was because it would run for a short period of time, stop, then restart again. The T87 worked fine with the forced air furnace we had several years ago, but ever since we upgraded to a 93% condensing furnace, it cycled so frequently that register air didn't have time to warm up adequately. We have a standing joke around here. "We have a furnace that heats with cold air."
So why do people have rapid, short cycling problems like this after upgrading from say forced air to high-efficiency condensing furnaces in cold climates? My theory is it might stem from the differences in their their sequence of operation.
A. Forced Air furnaces, i.e. 80% and less.
1 Thermostat calls for heat.
2. Burner starts.
3. Circulation fan starts after the air from the heat exchanger reaches 120-140 degrees.
4. Heats house.
5. Thermostat stops giving the call for heat.
6. Burner shuts off.
7. Circulation blower continues to circulate air until the air coming out of the heat exchange cools to 85 to 100 degrees so there is never any cold air exiting the register.
B. High Efficiency Condensing Furnaces, i.e. 90% plus.
1. Call for heat.
2. Draft motor starts and pulls in cold air from outside.
3. As soon as furnace detects draft, it starts the hot surface igniter.
4. At the 30 second point, the gas valve opens. Flame detector must see flame within 2-3 seconds.

The Honeywell's were of poor quality construction. Especially at the connection terminals. Honeywell also required some difficult connection lead wire installation so that constant power was being supplied via a G wire. LUX let me do it that way or via two AA batteries instead. Fabulous concept!
Install was so simple I suspected I had done something wrong. Not so. It was just to easy to install.
The readout is excellent!!! Excellent again!!! Look at the size of the numbers... Bright light! Just a simple touch of the screen wakes up the unit. PLUS....(Did I say PLUS?) see the MANUAL switches on the right side in the photo? Just flip one up or down if you want heat or AC but don't want to be bothered with the touch screen.
LUX, you put Honeywell to shame. Nice job, nice appearance, good quality, great price.
Got all the wires labeled. (Stickers Provided) Took off the old mounting bracket. Installed the new one. (Sheetrock anchors provided too.) Got the tiny tiny wires and the tiny tiny screws (apparently they are all that way) in the right slots. Put in the batteries, programmed it (simple) snapped it on the mounting bracket. Turned on the power and PRAISE THE LORD it works!!! Girls ROCK!!! I was so jazzed. It really was pretty easy to install, I just was so outside my comfort zone. So ladies this is the one for you!!
I have a Heat Pump with 2-stage electric heating and 1 stage cooling.
First, let's start with the few negatives I've found about this thermostat:
When used with a heat pump with AUX heat, it's not a very smart thermostat. While it can be programmed to automatically turn on the AUX heat when needed, the way it turns on the AUX heat isn't very efficient. What it really needs is a way to sense the outside temperature and be programmed to turn on AUX heat when outdoor temp is below a certain temperature. Instead, you have to program it to say that when the indoor temp is below a certain temp, to use AUX heat. Since a heat pump isn't efficient at heating a home once the outside temp is below 37 degrees, this feature is kind of useless on days when it's below 37 degrees.
I have had a few issues with the thermostat randomly resetting itself, which requires removing the battery, pressing the hardware reset button inside, and reprogramming the thermostat. It seems to happen when I switch between AUX heat back to the heat pump.
While I really like the ability to set a temp range, I wish it was more adjustable. Example, for the AC you can set the target temp at 75 degrees and have a 1 degree swing, so that the AC turns on when the temp reaches 76. The problem is, the swing goes both +/- so the AC will turn on at 76, run until it's 74 inside, and then turn off. I wish it had a way to only use positive or negative swing from the target temp. In other words, I'd like for it to turn on at 76 and turn off at 75 when it's set to 75.
For the positives:
Very easy to install.Read more ›
