It is never a great sound to hear the heating and cooling device turn on, and then off, and then on, and then off again.
If it keeps turning on and off again adore that, then that means the cooling unit is short cycling.
The a/c can short cycle for several reasons. Thankfully, I have quite a bit of knowledge when it comes to Heating, Ventilation and A/C, so I could absolutely diagnose the problem myselfâ€¦ One of the reasons a cooling device might short cycle, is because the air conditioning unit is too huge for the home. An a/c that is too huge you would suppose would be a great thing, but genuinely the short cycling causes the Heating, Ventilation and A/C device to have a much shorter lifespan because it cools the home entirely too quickly. I have had our central for years, and the short cycling is recent, so I knew that wasn’t the problem. Another reason that your device might short cycle is because it is restrained. I kind of wondered if this was our issue, since I had forgotten to change the air filter. My HEPA air filter by now was entirely quite dirty, and so I went and pulled it out and put a new Heating, Ventilation and A/C filter in. Sure enough that was the problem. It is dangerous to not change your Heating, Ventilation and A/C filters often enough, because it causes the to heat up and work harder in an attempt to cool your home. I am glad I caught this now, before it became a larger issue.
