How do you control a Lux thermostat?

Answered by John Hunt

To control a Lux thermostat, follow these steps:

1. Adjusting the temperature: On the Lux 2.0 thermostat, you can easily adjust the temperature by dragging the pointer in the middle of the screen. Move the pointer to the right to raise the temperature or to the left to lower it. Each movement of the pointer will adjust the temperature by up to 5 degrees in either direction. This allows you to find the perfect temperature setting for your comfort.

2. Changing fan and temperature modes: Directly below the temperature pointer, you will notice an upward pointing arrow. By tapping on this arrow, you can access the fan and temperature modes. This feature allows you to customize the thermostat’s settings according to your preferences and needs.

3. Exploring fan modes: When you tap on the upward pointing arrow, a menu will appear with different fan modes. These modes include options such as “Auto,” “On,” and “Circulate.” In the “Auto” mode, the fan will automatically turn on and off based on the heating or cooling system’s needs. The “On” mode keeps the fan running continuously. The “Circulate” mode runs the fan intermittently to maintain a more consistent temperature throughout your home.

4. Adjusting temperature modes: Within the temperature mode menu, you can find options like “Heat,” “Cool,” and “Off.” In the “Heat” mode, the thermostat will activate the heating system to maintain the desired temperature. The “Cool” mode activates the cooling system to cool down your home. The “Off” mode turns off both the heating and cooling systems, effectively shutting down the thermostat’s functions.

5. Additional features: Depending on the specific model of the Lux thermostat you have, there may be additional features available. These could include programmable schedules, energy-saving modes, vacation settings, and more. Make sure to consult the user manual or online resources for your specific model to explore all the features and capabilities of your Lux thermostat.

Controlling a Lux thermostat is a straightforward process. By adjusting the temperature and exploring the fan and temperature modes, you can easily customize the settings to create a comfortable and energy-efficient environment in your home.
