Time Delay Relay
Let your air conditioner do “highway miles" … instead of "city miles”
By preventing your outdoor unit from going on and offtoo frequently (short-cycling), a time delay keeps the unit from wearing out prematurely. A time delay is also very important for families that have children who like to play with the thermostat. No matter how often you change the setting, or switch the heat/cool switch or the fan on/auto switch, you can't burn out your compressor. This is because the time delay won't let your system turn on for 3-5 minutes after the last time it turned off. Modern digital thermostats have a time delay built in, but if you have a mechanical thermostat, we can install a separate accessory time delay relay in your outdoor unit.
