    Talking just wondering

    over the past few days I hear my unit cut on (as it should) but after it reaches the desired temp., the unit cycles off...after a minute I hear the air start again...then stops...after a minute it starts again...then stops. It does this approximate 7 to 8 times......then goes through its regular cycle again........whats gives??????

    when was the last time it was serviced
    might have a control going bad or a weak blower or just about any thing

    call and have it serviced and have the tech find out why it is happening

    What kind of unit? Gas, oil, heat pump, AC?

    Where are you?

    More info needed. Vague question gets a vague answer.
    Remember, Air Conditioning begins with AIR.

    need more info but it sounds like an old 70% eff. unit with hellical fan control. i have seen the pilot rust out and the large resulting flame will heat the fan switch turning it on. have your furnace looked at by your local professional.

    . The safest way is to just call a technician. theres too many variables without seeing it in person . good luck

    every time your blower motor cycles on and off like you say it draws a lot of electricity every time it starts
