Q I was told to get a thermostat with short cycle delay, what is that?

A All Ritetemp thermostats with COOL capability have a built-in approx. 5 minute short cycle delay from the time a compressor turns off until the thermostat will turn it back on. This is to prevent compressor stall. This delay is not present if the thermostat is turned from COOL to OFF and back to COOL and is not present in case of AC power interruption.
