Trane ComfortLink II Thermostat System Receives Popular Mechanics Breakthrough Award
In October of 2010, Popular Mechanics announced a positive first look at the soon-to-release Trane ComfortLink II thermostat unit. Public interest immediately followed the announcment.

Six Years of Trane ComfortLink II Satisfaction and Improvements
When it comes to innovation, new technology, and product reliability Trane has always been in the forefront of home air conditioning solutions. In 2010, Popular Mechanics proclaimed Trane heating and cooling products among “The Year’s 10 Most Transformative Products.” But that was six years ago.
What about now?
What about 2016 HVAC applications?
Has, through the years, the technology that drives the Trane ComfortLink II home thermostat control unit proven durable as well as successful?
Well. First off, the ComfortLink II home control unit has never been considered a typical thermostat. It came out as a unit that served as a one-of-a-kind zoning and controls HVAC product manager. When coupled to a wireless in-home router via a personal app, the system enables instant access and control over the installed ComfortLink system. Homeowners can even view and manage the comfort level of individual rooms within the home. And it is custom to personal taste. With ComfortLink, homeowners can go light with simple thermostat controls or they can go deep by viewing and managing home humidity, indoor air quality and the temperature management of individual rooms.
But go even deeper, Trane ComfortLink II functions also include on-screen tracking of current weather alerts and 5-day weather forecast for their precise location, all of this completed by an up-to-minute radar image of current conditions.
So what defines the distinctions between then and now, 2011 and 2016, modern heat pumps versus aged air conditioning systems, and current WiFi technology versus previous WiFi technology. One immediate fact surfaces: the performance of WiFi-based communication systems. For any form of digital communication, speed is the primary factor of increased product performance.
In March 2003, 3G came out as a new standard in mobile phone network technology. Users received greater data bandwidth, quicker web browsing and image-based functionality. It marked a giant step in the evolution of camera phones. Then along toward the end of 2008, WiMax networks made the scene. Shortly thereafter, during 2009 and 2010, 4G.LTE provided a considerable increase in performance, reliability and usability. And now we stand with 5G pushing around the corners. And on the side of land-based communications, Google Fiber excites millions of users with the prospects of a new and improved land speed.
What does all this mean when looking at the Trane ComfortLink II home thermostat system? Users gain improved functionality, greater speed, and quicker data feedback. So let’s close by zooming in on the current:
