Why is my Thermostat in Recovery Mode?

Smart thermostats have a feature called Adaptive Intelligent Recovery, or recovery mode, that allows your thermostat to learn how long your heating and cooling systems will take to modify interior temperatures to the settings you’ve programmed. Air Comfort of KY in Louisville, Kentucky, provides installation, repair and maintenance services that will help keep your smart thermostat operating optimally.

What Are Smart Thermostats?

Your thermostat is one of the most critical components of your HVAC system. While conventional thermostats permit you to adjust temperatures as you experience them, smart thermostats enable you to program temperature settings in anticipation of future needs. Some smart thermostats allow you to manage settings using digital apps and Wi-Fi connectivity whereas others learn from the settings you choose and begin scheduling your HVAC system themselves. Air Comfort of KY can help you choose a smart thermostat that’s right for the needs of your Louisville home.

What Is Recovery Mode?

Recovery mode is a function initiated to bring your home’s temperature to the setpoint you chose after your heating or cooling system has been disengaged for a certain period of time. Let’s say you’ve been at work all day and have turned your air conditioning system off, but you want your home to be cool when you get home at 5:30 p.m. The thermostat will learn how fast it takes your home to cool down to the desired temperature. It will optimize energy usage by turning your AC system on for the minimum time it takes to cool down your home.

During the time your home is cooling down, the message on the thermostat will read “Recovery.” Don’t worry; the thermostat isn’t broken. It’s merely “recovering” from the period when it was off.

Can Recovery Mode Help You Save Money?

Recovery mode can help you save on heating and cooling bills by letting you confine the use of your HVAC system to times when you really need it to regulate home temperatures.
