Why would my Honeywell Thermostat say temporary on the top of it ?

When a Honeywell thermostat displays “Temporary” at the top, it typically indicates that the thermostat is operating under a temporary setting or mode. This temporary mode can occur for various reasons depending on the thermostat model and its programming features. One common scenario is when the thermostat has been manually adjusted to a temporary setting that deviates from the programmed schedule. This could happen if someone adjusts the temperature settings directly on the thermostat rather than through the programmed schedule or if a temporary override is activated.

“Temporary” on a Honeywell thermostat signifies that the current temperature setting is not part of the regular program and will revert to the scheduled settings after a specified period or until manually changed. This feature allows users to adjust the temperature temporarily without permanently altering the programmed schedule. It’s designed to provide flexibility for adjusting comfort levels based on immediate needs, such as temporary changes in occupancy or comfort preferences.

A thermostat flashing “Temporary” could indicate that a temporary override mode is active. This means the thermostat is currently using a temporary temperature setting that overrides the programmed schedule. The flashing display serves as a visual reminder that the thermostat is operating under a temporary condition and will return to the programmed settings after a set period of time or when the override is manually canceled.

In the context of a thermostat, “temporary override” refers to the ability to manually adjust the temperature setting for a limited period without permanently changing the programmed schedule. This feature allows users to make temporary adjustments for immediate comfort needs, such as raising or lowering the temperature for a few hours. Once the override period expires or is manually canceled, the thermostat will resume following the programmed schedule for temperature settings. Temporary overrides are useful for adapting to short-term changes in occupancy or climate conditions without requiring a permanent adjustment to the thermostat’s schedule.
