Is your AC turning on and off again? It’s definitely not normal.
Short-cycling occurs when your AC turns on and off, over and over, without going through a proper cooling cycle. In the short-term, short-cycling will stop your home from getting cooler. In the long-term, you’re looking at costly repairs and possibly even replacement.
The bad news is that short-cycling can have a profound effect on your next energy bill. The good news, though, is that the earlier you take care of the problem, the better off you’ll be.
