How Short Cycling Hurts Your AC

What’s the big deal with short cycling? How does short cycling hurt your air conditioning system?

Air conditioning systems are built to withstand the test of time. But there are some aspects of an air conditioner’s cycle that are harder than others. The process of start up for an air conditioner is tough on your air conditioning unit if it has to be done on a routine basis. It’s simply not good for the air conditioning system.

Forcing your air conditioner to perform this process over and over for a whole summer, all while battling against harsh summer temperatures, is enough to wear down any air conditioning system. It’s going to damage your air conditioning system to the point of shortening its lifespan, decreasing the quality of your air conditioner, and even cause discomfort in your home.
