Trane XL824 Installation


The 824 is designed for installation in climate controlled living spaces. Place the unit in a central location with good circulation. For proper temperature sensing, avoid exposing the 824 to radiant heat source. Avoid locations close to windows, behind doors or alcoves with poor air circulation, adjoining outside walls, or doors that lead to the outside. Select a location that prevents the 824 from being directly exposed to air currents from supply registers or ceiling fans. Mount the Control on a section of interior wall that does not contain hot or cold water pipes or duct work.

Important: The 824 Control utilizes a 4.3” color touch screen. This screen generates heat which is vented out the top of the Control utilizing natural convection. If an air source is directed at or from above, heat from the screen can be trapped within the Control and can cause the indoor temperature to be biased. (Refer to Figure 1 on page 4.)
