Does your cooling device turn on and off frequently with inefficient cooling? Your air conditioner might be short cycling. Therefore, to solve this issue, AC service Mission Viejo professionals aim to provide you with the best quality service maintenance and help you identify the underlying cause of HVAC inefficiency and high energy load uptake.
Understanding the Cycle Time of the HVAC Systems
The cycle time of an Air Conditioning unit refers to the time taken to achieve the desired temperature of the room set on the thermostat. If the set thermostat temperature is much below the room temperature, the compressor will work for a longer time, thus increasing the cycle time. Cycle time is affected by a lot of factors, including-
Longer the cycle, the greater the efficiency of an air conditioning unit.
Longer cycles increase the overall comfort of the room as the desired temperature is maintained with the effective removal of humidity. Short cycling can fluctuate the room’s temperature at a very short interval of time, thus decreasing the overall comfort.
Ideal Cycle For An Air Conditioner Unit
Different HVAC systems have different cycle times. Ideally, 10-20 minutes of cycle time (2-3 cut-offs per hour) promotes maximum efficiency. If your air conditioning device turns on and off more than 3-4 times per hour, request a service appointment today.
