Blog Title: Should you run your air conditioner on short bursts?
Is it a good idea to let the air conditioner run on short burst for cooling, like 5 to 7 minutes a time, or to come on and stay on for longer period.

You air conditioner does not just cool your home/business, it also remove the humidity so as to maintain the comfort. It takes almost about 10 minutes for your air conditioner to reach it's peak efficiency. Once your air conditioner reaches peak efficiency, the dehumidifier starts working. Hence, if you use the air conditioenr for just 5 to 7 minutes, it wont work efficienctly. On top of that, by turning on and off your air conditioner, you might push your air conditioner too far based on the usage.
