What is the Adaptive Comfort function?

The Adaptive Comfort is a feature that allows the conditioning system to switch temporarily between heating and cooling modes based on specific conditions and then switch back to the originating mode.

How can I activate the Adaptive Comfort?

The Adaptive Comfort feature can be activated when the system is set in manual mode, either in heating or cooling. To access the Adaptive Comfort feature, users can go to the heating/cooling changeover page in the Messana App and select “Adaptive Comfort” from the burger menu.

How it works

The system operates by monitoring the temperature in different zones of the house. When certain trigger conditions are met, the system can automatically switch from the current heating or cooling mode to the opposite mode, referred to as the temporary mode.


In the winter, the system may switch from heating to temporary cooling mode if warm conditions arise, such as excessive solar heat gain from windows. Similarly, in the summer, if certain areas become too cold, the system can switch from cooling to temporary heating mode.


During the switch to the temporary mode, the system maintains the original setpoints for each zone. This means that the desired temperature for each zone remains the same as it was in the originating mode.


For further customization and fine-tuning of the system based on specific requirements or preferences within different areas of the house, the Adaptive Comfort feature incorporates the concept of zone weight. Each zone within the house can be assigned different weights by the user. These weights determine the influence of each zone on triggering the mode switch.


Factors such as the size or importance of a zone can influence its weight. Zones with higher weights have a greater impact on the triggering condition, while zones with lower weights have a lesser influence. Zones can be excluded from triggering the mode switch by assigning a weight of zero.


The Adaptive Comfort feature offers greater flexibility in managing your home’s temperature settings, providing precise control to adapt to changing conditions, especially in the shoulder months or areas where temperatures tend to vary drastically throughout the day.
