Does the PaceControls technology “short-cycle” a compressor?

No. Very short run times that do not permit lubricant to circulate fully are called “short-cycling” and can be harmful to a compressor. PaceControls actually prevents short-cycling because it is always set for a run time longer than the minimum established by manufacturers to avoid harmful short-cycling.

Because the PaceControls energy efficiency technology control sequence always begins with an “OFF” interval, the compressor or furnace will never be restarted immediately after it has been turned off, even if the thermostat says run.
