    We have an older model Trane ComfortLink II, installed in mid 2009, with a (limited) 5 year warranty still in effect. We’re having some real problems with the touch screen. It doesn’t work on four days of the week (Sun-Wed). The only way to change the heat setting on those days is to change the Schedule (the hours the heat is on and off). I called Trane Customer Service and their response was: “We don’t answer technical questions here. You’ll have to contact your local Trane accredited service person.” In other words, pay a local furnace company to troubleshoot the problem. I find their attitude less than helpful when their own web site troubleshooting section on this product doesn’t mention any such scenario as a possible problem. I have read over the book that came with the thermostat and according to that there is no possible way for part of the screen to be locked unless a “SCREEN LOCKED” notice is visible on the display. The thermostat has worked fine for 3-1/2 years. Now I have a problem and, seemingly, no recourse for an expensive product under warranty. As a retired Industry businessperson, seems to me they’d send out a Rep under these circumstances.

    Anyone else having problems with their 2009 Trane ComfortLink II Thermostat?

Danny Lipford: Trane’s been designing these fantastic energy-efficient units for years, but now they’ve redesigned the programmable thermostat. Check this out. Not only can you see it very well, which is good when your eyesight starts going bad. It also allows you to easily, very, very user-friendly adjust the temperature, when it’ll come on, when it’ll go off.

Also, it can tell you exactly how much energy you’re using. So that maybe you can adjust your lifestyle a little bit to save a little money there. And humidity, it’ll tell you exactly what your humidity is in your home. And we always talk about changing filters, it’ll tell you when you need to change your filter, and a whole lot more. You can even download pictures in this because it’s also a digital picture frame. Unbelievable.
