We like to think of air conditioners as silent protectors, quietly cooling our homes while they sit outside doing their thing. However, when problems arise, sometimes it’s up to homeowners to figure out what’s going on using their keen senses!

One of those problems is called short-cycling, which is the process of your air conditioner turning on and off too quickly without performing a full cooling cycle. AC units need to run an entire cycle in order to cool your home properly and effectively, otherwise, they risk straining certain components of the system and causing a premature breakdown. So, let’s try avoiding that premature breakdown by talking about what causes the short-cycling of an air conditioner and how you can prevent such a problem.

If the problem requires professional AC repairs, don’t fret! Call our team for air conditioning repair in Orlando, FL and get this nipped in the bud before the scorching summer approaches!
