Trane furnace Thermostat question
OK next question regarding the Trane XV95 furnace. This dual stage furnace can be used with a single or dual stage thermostat. When using a single stage it simply uses a timer in the furnace and if it has not reached temperature in a specific amount of time it goes to stage two. This is repeated on each start up.
I am told it would be far better to have a two stage thermostat do this. I am not sure that my dealer understands this so I may just let him install the stock thermostat and later hook up a better one.
Any thoughts on this? Any recommendations on a good thermostat that would work well with the XV95? An internet or phone connected thermostat would be nice given that I am often away for extended periods. Honeywell has some models that look promising.
