View Full Version : Trane vs Honeywell Tstats
Is there really any difference between Trane's XL thermostat and Honeywell's Vision Pro 8000 (other than the name stamped on the front)? I know the Trane is made for them by Honeywell, but also costs more.
The reason I am asking is we are getting a new Trane XV90 installed, and wanted to know if there were any changes between the 2 tstat lines.

The Trane thermostat is covered under your 10 year parts and labor warranty if opt for one.
There is no functional difference.
Mark--thanks for the response. I had heard that the Trane XL had some changes in the controls, but couldn't find any info to back that up.
I have really learned alot from this site. Keep up the good work!

The only "changes" to the controls are in the installer setup. The Trane version of the thermostat leaves out some of the installer setup options that will never pertain to Trane equipment.

You will get a slightly larger rebate from Trane if you use the Trane stat.

It's my understanding is in the Comfort R setting of which Trane has and Honeywell does not. Comfort R is a configuration to reduce humidity and consistant heating and cooling that Trane uses in some of their higher end systems.

Comfort-R is a function of the varriable speed indoor units, it has nothing to do with the thermostat.

Actually, there is a Comfort R setting in the Trane thermostats. It isn't used with variable speed, but it is there (was there last year...)
Comfort R in the thermostat is a blower delay on a call for cooling. Let's you get a colder coil with a PSC blower motor.
You wouldn't want it working with the unit's Comfort R ramp. I'd suspect that you'd get some liquid slugging or frosty coils if it was used with the 50-80-100% ramp.

I believe that is to hold off energizing G for 30 seconds on a call for cool to get the coil cold quicker.

It's been way too long since I've installed a good t-stat.
Do these measure humidity too? So you could break the R-BK jumper and run it through the stat for the 2nd range of comfort R?

If you install a Carrier Thermidistat, you can do that. :D
