Why is my thermostat starting the heat or cool before the program time?

Last updated

The thermostat has a feature called Adaptive Intelligent Recovery(AIR) or Smart Response or Early Start. This allows the thermostat to "learn" how long the heating and cooling system will take to reach the programmed temperature settings. So the temperature is reached at the time you set. For example: Set the Wake time to 6am, and the temperature to 70F. The heat will come on before 6am, so the temperature is 70F by the time you wake at 6am. The message "recovery" is displayed when the system is activated before a scheduled time period.
