Setting up Balance AC
You can activate Balance AC for each room that is independently controlled by a tado° Smart AC Control.
To do so, follow these steps in the app:
Go to Settings, and
select Balance AC.
Select the room for which you’d like to enable Balance AC, and
toggle Balance AC to on, then
select your preferred mode (see below).
Balance AC modes
Modes define how much the room temperature can drop or rise (depending on whether your AC is in heating or cooling mode) before your AC will be turned on again to reach your desired temperature (set via your tado° Smart Schedule).
You can choose one of the three following modes:
Eco: Temperature can change up to 2 °C below or above that set in the room’s Smart Schedule (allows for highest savings).
Standard: Temperature can change up to 1.4 °C below or above that set in the room’s Smart Schedule.
Comfort: Temperature can change up to 0.6 °C below or above that set in the room’s Smart Schedule.
Balance AC will only turn off your AC if the following conditions are met:
Your room is currently heating/cooling according to the Smart Schedule, and you haven’t changed the desired temperature manually on the tado° Smart AC Control or in your app.
The current measured room temperature doesn’t exceed the allowance in the selected Balance AC mode.
Turning your AC back on manually
When Balance AC has turned off your AC, your app will show this on the Room Screen, with a message by Balance AC.
You can turn your AC back on manually again by selecting Cancel on the Room Screen. Your room will then continue to heat up/cool down according to the Smart Schedule.
You can also use the Quick Action Resume Schedule on the Home screen to resume heating/cooling according to the Smart Schedule for all rooms at once.
Note: this will only override the feature for the current time slot, and Balance AC will turn off your AC again when electricity prices are high at a later point in time.
