Thermostat RoberstShaw 9725i2 versus Lennox SignatureStat

My thermostat Lennox SignatureStat is acting up (display comes and goes). I was wondering if anyone knows if I could use the RobertShaw to replace the Lennox (same connections for wires/termination)?

I have an outdoor temp sensor and the furnace is a Lennox G61MPV (two stages variable speed).

Thanks.

The signature stat has had problems from day 1 in my experience. It would be best to move to a Honeywell, or Ecobee, or Emerson thermostat in my opinion. This will require more than just simply changing the thermostat though. I recommend a professional to do this.

Thanks for your reply. But what about the RobertShaw I mentionned? It looks identical to the SignatureStat, which I love, in spite of it flaws.

I've looked at the Lennox Comfortsense 7000, as well as the Honeywell, but I wasn't impressed with the touch screen.

I really like the SignatureStat. It recently developped vertical dark blue lines on the display that come and go, but apart from that, it has been reliable.

The RobertShaw I mentionned seems to be a copy of the SignatureStat, so I would go with that one if possible???

Thanks.

That should work, but I urge you to get away from that thermostat.......

You will need to reprogram the thermostat for your system which can be difficult with that particular model.
