Monday, November 19th, 2018

woman-hand-headThis topic covers both heating and air conditioning systems. If your heater or air conditioner is running in short bursts, then it is short cycling.

There is really just no benefit to be had in waiting until the system can’t chug along any longer to have the problem resolved. That being said, we know that some homeowners may also find it a bit strange to schedule air conditioning repair at the very end of the cooling season.
