Short cycling is one of the lesser-known banes of owning and maintaining an air conditioner for most homeowners. The problem stems from the air conditioner's compressor starting up and shutting down more frequently than it's designed to. Instead of running in 10 to 15-minute cycles two to three times an hour, a short-cycling A/C unit experiences more frequent cycles with much shorter run times. Short cycling can take a toll on your compressor and other A/C components, guaranteeing a shorter life and a bigger repair bill.
