View Full Version : "Temporary unoccupied" for carrier infinity system?
05-20-2009, 08:37 AM
I've looked through the manual but I can't find it:
1. How do I indicate "temporarily unoccupied"?
2. Is there a way to override the programming only until the next schedule period?
Both of these seem like common things to do. My schedule is unpredictable, and the way things stand now, when I leave the house I have to manually override everything to the same settings each time, and I have to calculate how long I'll be gone (even though I usually return home at the same time). Isn't there a better way?

Press the hold button one time. Then adjust the time duration of the hold.
That's the only way.

Another method is to use the vacation function. Pressing the vacation button will put you in the vacation mode. The default is one day. You can increase it to as many days as you like. If you are out for several hous, you would turn off vacation mode when you returned.
You can set the default values for the vacation mode using the advanced set up. You can select the minimum and maximum temperatures. You can also set the fan speed. You still have the ability to override the default settings whenever you enter the vacation mode.

What I'm looking for is a "vacation"-like mode that's less than one day. I'm surprised I'm the only one who needs this. To go through all the trouble of having an "unoccupied" mode and not to be able to use it when I leave the house (and still have the heat or A/C back on when I get home) seems like wasted potential.

Hold the zone button to select all zones.
Now, do your temporary hold. That will save you from having to do each zone individually.

But I still have to set the heating and A/C point for the temporary hold. Each day setting things to exactly what's already programmed in the system (under "unoccupied") just seems silly. And it's not so easy to program both the heat and the A/C and then put the system back in dual mode.

I've seen many thermostats.
What you desire doesn't exist to my knowledge.
Personally, I just set it and forget it.
