We don't normally consider the performance of our air conditioner or heat pump when selecting settings. We mostly only consider temperature.
However, the output of the same setting differs depending on the performance of your system. For example, is the BTU (British Thermal Unit) of your system appropriate for the size of your room? If your system is more powerful than is needed (a.k.a oversized) for your room, the settings or cooling/heating time required would need to be adjusted accordingly and vice versa.
The same air conditioner or heat pump may perform differently in different rooms, depending on the size and layout of the room.
With the help of A.I., we make sense of the data collected and keep track of how the settings are performing by measuring how it impacts the room to determine how long it takes for the setting to cool/warm the room down. In combination of the room conditions and your preferences that we learn about, we can select settings that would meet our targets more efficiently.
