Recovery mode is designed to work in conjunction with the thermostat’s schedule to ensure that your home is at the desired temperature at the scheduled time, without wasting energy.
So, why is the honeywell thermostat following the schedule in recovery?
When recovery mode is enabled, the thermostat will start heating or cooling your home in advance of the scheduled set point so that the desired temperature is reached by the scheduled time. However, the thermostat will still follow the schedule you have set, adjusting the temperature at the programmed times throughout the day.
For example, if you have programmed your thermostat to lower the temperature during the day while you’re away and raise it in the evening when you’re home, the recovery mode will start heating or cooling your home early so that the desired temperature is reached by the time you return, while still following the programmed schedule.
What is Honeywell thermostat recovery mode by the way?
Honeywell thermostat recovery mode is a feature that allows the thermostat to start heating or cooling your home before the scheduled set point. It works by analyzing your home’s temperature patterns and turning on your heating or cooling system in advance so that the desired temperature is reached at the scheduled time.
For example, if you have set the thermostat to 72°F at 8:00 am, and the current temperature of your home is 68°F, the recovery mode will start the heating system early so that the desired temperature of 72°F is reached by 8:00 am. This feature ensures that your home is at the desired temperature when you wake up or return home, without wasting energy by running your heating or cooling system for long periods of time.
Note that the recovery mode is only effective if your thermostat is programmed to maintain a schedule. If your thermostat is set to hold a constant temperature, the recovery mode will not have any effect.

What is the Honeywell thermostat schedule?
A Honeywell thermostat schedule is a pre-set program that allows you to set different temperature settings for your heating and cooling system throughout the day. This means you can program your thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature to your desired level at different times of the day, rather than having to manually adjust the temperature each time.
For example, you might set your Honeywell thermostat to keep your home cooler during the day when you’re at work or school, and then start warming up your home before you return in the evening. This can help save energy and money on your heating and cooling bills.
How do I override the schedule on a Honeywell thermostat?
- To override the schedule,
- Press up or down until the desired temperature is displayed.
- Press the Hold button to maintain the new temperature
- The word Hold will appear on the screen.
- Press the Run button if you wish to cancel either override and resume the schedule.
