Smart AC and HomeKit - understanding what’s happening
Hello. British guy here, which means the concept of air conditioners is fairly new to me. I have one - a Daikin model - in my office, and I’m controlling it from my Tado. I’m trying to understand some of its behaviours, across the Tado app and HomeKit.
The first thing I’m stuck on is this. Today, I’m set it (via Home) to 20 degrees, in Heat mode. The room is now 23.5 degrees, according to Tado and Home, see images attached. However, the AC unit’s fan is still on. The air coming from it feels about room temperature, maybe slightly cooler.
The expected behaviour here would be that, once it reaches the set temperature, it turns off. So why would it still be going? One thought was that it was trying to get my room back down to 20 now that it’s over, by cooling the room. But my understanding was that, in Heat mode, it will only ever Heat, and if I want it to regulate the temperature both up and down I’d need to use Auto mode.
Any help much appreciated.
