Another day I got a question, what does hold mean on the thermostat? In this post, I am going to explain what it means and how to use the hold button.
What Does Hold Mean on the Thermostat
The hold button on the thermostat allows you to keep it at the desired temperature which is different from your normal programming.
Think of this as an override button, that will override your normal temperature settings until you change it manually.
There are two kinds of hold settings. The “Permanent Hold” option maintains the schedule override until you manually cancel it.
On the other hand, the temporary hold or “Hold Until” keeps the new temperature for a predetermined amount of time. It automatically resumes your regular schedule thereafter.
