Is Your AC Short Cycling? Call for Repair Services Today

Monday, August 12th, 2019

Are you having trouble with your air conditioner? This is the last thing that you want to happen during a summer here in Vancouver. We know that we’re not always known for scorching hot summer temperatures here in our neck of the woods, but when temperatures start to peak, you’re not going to want a defunct air conditioning system in your home.

Contact our professionals for AC repair in Vancouver, WA today. We can help you get rid of that pesky short cycling problem that you’re having. Short cycling is the worst for your home comfort and for the longevity of your air conditioning system. Contact us and we’ll get your system together and functioning better than ever.

What’s Short Cycling?

Short cycling is a fancy HVAC term for the process of your air conditioner turning on, running for a super short amount of time, stopping, and then turning on again shortly after to start the entire process all over again.

Short cycling is bad for your home comfort and bad for your air conditioning system. It’s bad for your home comfort because short cycling means that your air conditioner will never have an opportunity to complete a full cooling cycle.

It’s bad for the function of your air conditioning system because it means that your air conditioner is forced to repeat the hardest part of the air conditioning cycle (startup) multiple times an hour. Make sure that you notice when short cycling starts to happen in your home and that you report it to a professional at our team sooner than later.

How Short Cycling Happens

So how does short cycling start to happen in your home? It’s not just something that starts up out of nowhere, right? Short cycling is normally the side effect of the following problems:

  • Bad Refrigerant: Are you low on refrigerant in your air conditioning system? Being low on refrigerant is always the side effect of a refrigerant leak—your refrigerant never “runs out.” If you’re having a problem with your refrigerant, you can contact our team to fix the issue the right way. We’re not just going to give you a temporary fix. We’ll eliminate the problem at the source.
  • Your AC Is Improperly Sized: When you’re trying to choose the right size air conditioner and you can’t choose, bigger is always better, right? Absolutely wrong. The problem with an oversized air conditioning system can cool off your room too quickly. Air conditioning issues create short cycling problems because the unit is trying to cool off a space overzealously. A bigger air conditioning system won’t cool off anything faster. Contact our professionals today.
  • You’ve Got a Failing Compressor: Your air conditioner’s compressor is the heart of your air conditioning system. A lot of the time, short cycling is just a symptom of a failing air conditioner compressor. Have our professionals come out to your home and service your air conditioning system. We’ll diagnose the problem and fix it fast.
