A Miscalibrated Thermostat

Last weekend, I noticed that my cooling system was running in strange cycles.

I would hear the cooling system turn on plus power the air through the air vents, only to shut off within a few hours.

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