What is a Temporary Hold on a Honeywell Thermostat?
A temporary hold on a Honeywell Thermostat is an instruction for the thermostat to temporarily maintain the building's HVAC system at a set temperature. The HVAC system will remain set at this temperature until the temporary hold expires. A user can decide when the temporary hold expires.
A user will often set up a schedule for their Honeywell Thermostat. By doing this, the thermostat will follow the schedule and adjust the HVAC system based on the current time. By setting a hold, the thermostat will ignore the schedule and instead keep the temperature consistently at a set level. Simply put, a "temporary hold" means that the set temperature of the thermostat will be held at a set level for a certain period of time.
There are two types of holds that can be used with a Honeywell Thermostat. These are temporary holds and permanent holds. A temporary hold will keep the HVAC system set to the held temperature for a temporary period of time of less than 12 hours or until the hold is cancelled. A permanent hold will keep the HVAC system set to the held temperature permanently, until the hold is cancelled.
A hold can be set by simply increasing (+) or decreasing (-) the temperature of the thermostat while it is running its normal schedule. Once the temperature has been adjusted, the message "Hold Until" will appear. This indicates that the thermostat is now in a temporary hold. By clicking on the "Hold Until" message, a user can set when the temporary hold will expire and have the thermostat resume its normal schedule. A user can also press the "Hold Until" message and then choose "Permanent Hold" to set a permanent hold on the thermostat. Clicking the "Run Schedule" button at any time will cancel the hold.
