A key feature of a whole-home heating and air conditioning system is that it runs in cycles. In general, the heating and cooling systems should only have to run when the temperatures go beyond the setting on the thermostat. The blower unit kicks in to bring you back to your desired temperature, and then it shuts off once it reaches an ideal range. If your HVAC system won’t stop running, this indicates some sort of issue. But what could it be?
Check the thermostat
This might seem like an obvious step, but take a closer look to be sure the settings were not changed by accident. “Fan on” mode is a common setting that could have been tampered with by mistake. Read the owner’s manual for the thermostat if you need help or call a local technician.
Try the filter
Another possible reason for your air conditioning and heating systems constantly cycling is a lack of airflow. This is a result of poor maintenance, which may only mean you have to change the air filter. Try replacing a dirty filter, and see if this changes the performance of your system. Routine maintenance can also improve the performance of an air conditioning or heating system with tune-ups to the most important components of the system. Call a professional for more information about annual professional maintenance services in your area.
Call an Expert
When these aren’t the solutions to your heating and cooling problems, it’s best to call in an expert. There may be an issue with the limit switch of your heater or a problem with the blower fan motor. In any case, you want a professional to solve the problem for your safety, comfort, bills and the longevity of your unit.
Kyle came out to do maintenance on the unit they installed 4 years ago and I can say the level of service from then to now has been stellar. The unit is in great shape and the peace of mind from their maintenance service is worth it. Nothing but good things to say about this company. 10/10 would recommend.

The best, end of story! We had to have our system replaced when we bought our old beach home. I was totally blown away with how quickly the job was done. The crew was extremely professional, and kept everything clean.

Jason and crew were great to work with. A hands on owner which cares about the work and system being installed. Extremely recommend. The three hundred dollar rebate from Beaches Energy for the high efficiency unit was also icing on the cake.

I had Kyle as my technician and the customer service was top notch. He was prompt and very polite. The thing I appreciated was the honesty. There wasn’t any attempt to try and provide me service that I didn’t need, and no pressure to try and upsell me on anything. Kyle was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I got on the maintenance plan and recommend this company to everyone.
