Prevent air conditioner short cycling with proper maintenance

There are two important ways that you can prevent air conditioner short cycling. The first thing you can do is keep a clean air filter installed in your system. This will prevent airflow issues that will otherwise cause short cycling and a whole host of other problems. The second thing you can do is schedule an A/C tune-up every year. During your tune-up we’ll inspect your system for all of the above problems and more, which will significantly lower the chance of encountering short cycling issues during the cooling season.
