Honeywell VisionPro Thermostat Reviews

honeywell-7600-touchscreen-programmable-thermostatHoneywell hit a home run with the VisionPro Thermostat as the thermostat is easy to use and easy to learn especially the programming part. That is remarkable as many programmable thermostats from the previous generation of thermostats nearly required a degree in rocket science to program. The Honeywell VisionPro is great for either air conditioners with gas/oil/electric furnaces or heat pumps with either electric heat or gas/oil furnaces in a dual fuel configuration. The Honeywell VisionPro thermostat is touch screen so there are no buttons or switches what-so-ever. The Honeywell VisionPro does have a separate program for the installer to configure but when it is done there are no further worries and the instructions are clear and implicit. Some features of the Honeywell VisionPro thermostat include:

  • Easy menu and programming
  • 7 day programming but other programming combinations are easily programmed in the Honeywell VisionPro
  • Built in Clock for time keeping
  • Uses power from the air handler but also has a back-up battery in case you lose power
  • Filter reminder alert and low battery alert
  • Skip the program temporarily with a hold button if you want manual settings
  • Optional outdoor temperature sensor for better heat pump control
  • Back light can be turned on permanently or just when you touch the thermostat

There are three models available for the Honeywell VisionPro 8000 thermostat: TH8110U1003, TH8320U1008, TH8321U1006 with each of those model numbers have their very own capabilities as follows:

  1. TH8110U1003 – For single stage heat and single stage cooling systems
  2. TH8320U1008 – For 3 stages of heating and 2 stages of cooling
  3. TH8321U1006 – For 3 stages of heating and 2 stages of cooling plus thermostat can read humidity for dehumidification programs.

One of the really great things about this Honeywell thermostat is that it has Adaptive Intelligent Recovery that allows the thermostat to learn your system so it will know when to turn the system on to have it at set point by the time you have programmed inot the thermostat program. E.G. You want the temperature to be 72° F when you get home at 6 PM from work. Over a period of time the thermostat will know when to turn the air conditioner on so the the temperature will be 72° F when you get home from work. If the temperature is really hot the thermostat may turn the system on a few hours early to make sure the temperature set point is achieved by the time you get home. If it is a mild day it will turn the system on 15 minutes before you get home. Over a period of time the thermostat learns your system and know when it needs to turn the system to get the temperature to where you want it and when you want it.

As always High Performance HVAC always recommends a time delay to save the compressor and the Honeywell VisionPro has a built in time delay specifically to save the compressor from short cycling that can occur for various reasons. An auto changeover feature allows you to go from heating to cooling automatically as necessary. The Honeywell VisionPro holds three double A batteries that can easily be changed. Refer to owners manual for changing the batteries. This thermostat is feature rich and we doubt you will be disappointed.
