What does it mean when air conditioner says in recovery?

The "in recovery" is part of Honeywell's Smart Response Technology. This feature allows the thermostat to “learn” how long the furnace and air conditioner take to reach programmed temperature settings, so the temperature is reached at the time you set. For example: Set the Wake time to 6 am, and the temperature to 70°.

Accordingly, what does it mean when AC says in recovery?

Recovery mode is when the thermostat turns on the heating/cooling ahead of time so it reaches the set point by the scheduled time. In other words, you set the time for when you want it to reach that temperature, and the thermostat learns how long it takes to warm up.

what does recovery mode on thermostat mean? Recovery mode on a thermostat is used to bring a space back to a normal occupied setpoint after having been set back usually by a schedule. Let's say you are gone all day so your schedule sets the temp to 80 degrees while you are gone. But it is scheduled to reset the temp to 76 at 5:00 PM when you normally get home.

Simply so, can I override recovery mode on thermostat?

A programmable thermostat is the only type I know of that has a recovery period, So the answer is absolutely yes, you may override it. If it is 80° in your house and you want it at 75, you cannot change the temperature on the thermostat and magically make the House 75°. That is the whole point of the recovery period.
