I know this is a very subjective question, as it can depend on many variables... but from a general "rule of thumb" perspective during average cooling days, what timing cycle would you consider "short cycling" of the compressor?
For example, how long would you expect a properly sized compressor to run, stop, then run again?
Or conversely, how much time would you consider a typically normal run, stop, run cycle to take?
I'm not asking for early season when the temps are cool, peak season when temps are at their max necessarily.
I don't really think our system is short cycling, but I'm just trying to get a feel for what is normal for our 5ton Carrier we just put in two summers ago.
