I read a post below about a compressor short cycling . So my question is, how long should your compressor run ? We had one of our first semi warm days yesterday (low 80s) and checking how my system was working. It seems pretty consistent at 7 min utes on, 20 minutes off. I would think the cycle will change as it gets hotter. But how long should it run before it would be considered overpowered for the house ? I know there is a happy median somewhere, just not sure what that is. In other words how long is to short of a cycle where it is bad for the system..
