You’ve turned your air conditioner on for the first couple of times this season and you’ve noticed something peculiar–it’s running in shorter cycles than it used to. At first, this might just feel like a fluke, perhaps you’re just not measuring the time accurately since you’re busy. Or, maybe your air conditioner just doesn’t need to work as hard this year as opposed to last year. But these are usually justifications for ignoring a pretty serious problem that’s taking place.
This is what we call in the industry short cycling and it’s a devastating problem, both with how hard it can be to notice, and how bad it is for the AC. It’s not just a problem in and of itself, it’s a symptom of some other problems. A professional will be able to tell you all about this when you schedule AC repair in Modesto, CA.
