A Miscalibrated Thermostat

Last weekend, I noticed that my air conditioner was running in peculiar cycles.

I would hear the air conditioner turn on as well as power the air through the air vents, only to shut off within a few minutes.

Some cycles would last much longer as well as some were shorter. I didn’t guess how my air conditioner was supposed to sound, although I thought this sounded abnormal. I called the emergency Heating as well as Air Conditioning line as well as asked a professional to come examine the a/c equipment so I could rest knowing that I did what I could. While I was waiting for the Heating as well as Air Conditioning business to arrive, I timed the intervals in between cycles so I could relay the information. The Heating as well as Air Conditioning business listened to the short cycling himself, although she was thankful for my timing because it helped him get a better understanding of the severity. When I asked him what she thought it could be, she told me that it was most likely my thermostat. This was something I hadn’t considered, although I was enthusiastic it wasn’t anything wrong with my air conditioner. Like she said, the thermostat was miscalibrated, which was causing the air to turn on as well as off at peculiar intervals. All she did was turn off the thermostat for thirty minutes as well as then turned it back on again. Upon doing this, the short cycling stopped. However, she suggested that I have the thermostat replaced if the same thing kept happening. I told him that I would keep an eye on it.
