Trane ComfortLink II
You can not compare this unit against your regular standard thermostat! When planning HVAC schedules, the device's 7" touchscreen really eclipses the competition for easy of use and clarity of information. The device has a lot of information to share, gathering information from online forecast and fires up heating and cooling equipment based on the weather condition. It also remembers a house's HVAC history to use it as reference for future settings and comparing cost from year to year. The system could eventually be used to measure specific machine's performance and could be used to project costs of a home HVAC operation over time.
