I have a brand new XR80 furnace installed over the summer. I fired this baby up for the first time about 2 wks ago. I have it set to bring the house to 70 degrees by 6am. Since then I’m finding that the unit recycles every 5-6 minutes with no temperature change on the thermostat…so it’ll shut off and back on within 5-6 minutes (see below for the on/off cycle). To my thinking, that’s too much. I would think that the unit would let the temperature fall a degree or two before cycling back on. With my last furnace, I had the ability to adjust the thermostat to do this…something to do with adjusting the swing settings(?)
Is there something wrong with the system or is this normal for the Trane XR80 to cycle on/off so quickly with no change in temperature?
Do I need a different thermostat? The new system came with TCONT600AF11MA “Programmable Comfort Control”…
Thanks in advance!!
