Customer Question
I have a Trane Touch...
I have a Trane Touch Screen thermostat TCONT802AS32DA the indoor temperature has a 5 to 6 degree difference versus a thermometer that is just a few feet away that is the thermostat is reading the current temperature at 65 degrees but the independent thermometer is reading 60 or 61.

Have you looked behind the thermostat to see if it is sealed up well behind the thermostat? It may drafting through the wall.

I am not at home right now to check the set up menu and reading your directions I am not quite sure how to find out if the thermostat was set up with a degree difference.
