I'm waiting for thoses electricians to get home, eat dinner and get on the forum, lol! Yes, I would think that a normal a/c cycle would be that the a/c runs and when it reaches the set temperature, the compressor would kick off and leave the fan running for circulation. As for these new energy saving mode, the darn a/c keeps cutting on and off all night. So the room cools, but when the entire unit shuts off, there is no air circulation in the room until it kicks back on. I would think that this would not save energy but waste more since the compressor and fan are both pulling excessive power with the kicking on and off all the time. I know I can just put in cool, but whats up with this energy crap they are doing. I think its just a selling gimick, waiting on you electricians inputs.
