Generally, everything runs smoothly until you need an “unscheduled” temperature change for a short period. Do you have to change the programmed schedules and then, after a few hours or days reprogram the thermostat again? Fortunately, you don’t have to reprogram the thermostat. Almost all programmable and smart Honeywell thermostats have a “hold” function with which you can put your scheduled programs on hold for any period of time.
