The recovery mode is when the thermostat prematurely turns on the heating / cooling so that it reaches the set point at the scheduled time. In other words, you set the time to reach this temperature and the thermostat learns how long to warm up.
This is the amount of time you have “recovered” from the time you spent away from energy savings, for example, to reach the desired set point when you are at home or in attendance. These types of thermostats “learn” your habits and set the pattern accordingly. If you change your habits frequently, this mode will be displayed more frequently.
On the other hand, if you have a reproducible and predictable pattern, the thermostat will learn it quickly and the recovery phase will take place when you are not even there, typically during your commute or the like. It may be that your home is 10-15 degrees warmer than you feel when you are not there. Restore the 10-15 degree cooling when you travel home and the house is the way you want it when you want it to arrive. In winter, it is the other way round and instead saves heating costs. This is a bit simplified, but these are the basics.
what does mean honeywell thermostat is in recovery mode?
The recovery mode of a thermostat is used to reset a room to a normal occupied set point after it is normally reset by a schedule. Suppose you are away all day, and your schedule sets the temperature at 80 degrees while you are away. However, it is planned to reset the temperature at 17:00 to 76 when you are normally home. The part of the day on which the temperature is readjusted from the energy-saving 80 degrees to the 76 degrees desired for occupant use is the recovery time.

This is an important part of your HVAC system. It switches off the air conditioning pump or the heater and lets only the fan run. In the case of air conditioning, this is an important feature as it can help defrost the condenser, which can become clogged with ice. When heating, it runs over the hot heating elements and uses less gas heating. This is part of an efficient HVAC system. In other words, when it’s recovering, it’s efficient and saves money.
