If your Honeywell thermostat displays “Temporary” at the top, it indicates that the thermostat is currently operating in a temporary override mode. This mode allows you to manually adjust the temperature for a temporary period without affecting the programmed schedule.
There are several common reasons why your thermostat might be in temporary mode:
- Manual Override:
- You or someone in your household may have manually adjusted the temperature, activating the temporary override.
- Hold Function:
- The temporary override is often activated through the thermostat’s “Hold” function, allowing you to set a constant temperature for a specific duration.
- Schedule Change:
- If there has been a recent change in the programmed schedule, the thermostat may enter temporary mode to accommodate the adjusted settings.
To exit the temporary override mode and revert to the programmed schedule, you typically need to follow these steps:
- Look for a “Cancel” or “Exit” button on the thermostat.
- Press the button to cancel the temporary override and return to the programmed settings.
Refer to your thermostat’s user manual for specific instructions tailored to your model, as the exact steps can vary. Understanding how to use the override and programming features of your thermostat can help you efficiently manage your home’s heating and cooling.
