Functions and Performance

The Lux Products TX9000TS is Energy Star approved and comes with a 1 year warranty. It is programmable thermostat that gives the user a program slot for each day of the week and within each day the user can set up 4 different periods of heating/cooling. This arrangement allows the user to match the indoor climate with the schedules of a home’s occupants to cut out waste from bills. On average, using a programmable thermostat can reduce heating/cooling bills by as much as 30% a year.

The Lux Products TX9000TS is easy to install and has a large backlit touchscreen interface. Programming is easy and there is a useful ‘copy’ function to allow you to repeat settings from day to day.

There are also a number of useful functions on the Lux Products TX9000TS. These include smart response that pre-heats or pre-cools prior to the start of a programmed period. There is auto change-over that detects sudden changes in indoor temperature and automatically switches between heating and cooling (or vice versa) to maintain a precise temperature.

Furthermore, the Lux Products TX9000TS has swing control to stop the HVAC getting damaged from short cycling. This function can be set in 0.5 degree increments up to 2.5 degrees.

Another useful feature on the Lux Products TX9000TS is an energy usage monitor that tells the homeowner just how much energy the HVAC is using. The display also shows time in either 12 or 24 hour systems and temperature in either Celsius or Fahrenheit.

When a program change is made there is an audio confirmation so the user knows that the change has been registered. For quick changes there is a temporary override function that lets the user increase/decrease the temperature without altering the 7 day settings.

Compatibility

The Lux Products TX9000TS is compatible with a wide range of 24 volt HVAC systems including 1 stage heat; 1 stage cool; gas; oil; electric; single stage heat pump systems; 2 wire heat only hydronic systems; hot water baseboard and radiator; Millivolt subsets; wall heaters; furnaces and gas fireplaces. Unfortunately, the Lux Products TX9000TS cannot regulate 2 stages of heating and cooling and multi stage heat pumps.

Reviews

The Lux Products TX9000TS has won awards from consumer groups for performance and value for money. Reviews of the Lux Products TX9000TS on Amazon are overwhelmingly positive. People who bought the thermostat tend to be impressed by the convenience of the backlight (which comes on without initiating a program change, unlike some Honeywell thermostats) and the energy usage monitor.

The Amazon reviews also testify to how easy the device is to install and although some people thought the programming style could be improved, just as many people commented on the handiness of the copy function for quick programming.
